Our PR Mentoring programme launched in 2016 and has allowed us to expand the reach of the Foundation’s work, supporting a greater number of talented graduates as they pursue a career in communications and PR.

To date we have made over 50 successful matches, and through our survey findings it is evident that mentoring benefits both the mentee and the mentor. Mentees reported that mentoring helped them to develop their knowledge of the industry and their contacts; it also helped build their confidence and they are now better equipped to apply for the PR roles that they want by the end of the mentoring programme.

Our mentors also fed back how much they benefitted from the mentoring relationship, with over a quarter of mentors reporting that they now feel better equipped to give PR specific career advice. Mentoring also proved to be a great all-round learning experience.
