One of the most valuable ways alumni can stay involved with AKS is by volunteering their time to build connections with current students and fellow alumni and supporting with careers education and mentoring. You have a unique perspective of the student experience and an unparalleled opportunity to help equip the next generation with the skills they need to succeed.
Beyond AKS is our new online mentoring service where AKS leavers and alumni with years of experience can connect to share advice, ask questions, and offer support.
We invite both those considering what to do after school and those looking to further or change their careers to use this service, which is supported entirely by our OAKS alumni volunteers.
Our ambition is to be able to offer online support with CV reviews, careers guidance, industry/sector specific help, interview prep, mentor relationships, return to work advice, advice around setting up a business or advice about relocation.
This service is only possible with the support from our alumni community and so we welcome more OAKS alumni to register with us as mentors. By registering with us, you will be able to promote your areas of knowledge with contact details for people to get in touch, ask questions and offer support.
Our new online mentor database is growing! Search our database for mentors that work in your desired profession, that went to your university or have experience in the field you are curious in. If you can’t find an immediate match try adjusting your search criteria.
