The mentoring program is a developmental process between the mentee (Haaga-Helia student) and the mentor (alumni). Mentoring is about learning together, sharing experiences and knowledge through interaction. The aim is to support the student's professional growth, graduation and employment. The individual goals of the mentoring program arise from the personal needs of the mentee.
As the aim of the programme is to find a dedicated mentor for the participants, those who are accepted for the course must answer the pre-application questionnaire by 8 January at the latest. A link will be sent by email. The course is recommended to be taken towards the end of your studies.
The mentoring program consists of mentoring meetings between the mentor and the mentee, as well as joint group meetings and self-study materials in Moodle. The content of mentoring meetings can be related to, for example, career planning, challenges in working life, challenges in the final stages of study, self-development or deepening expertise. The initial group meeting reviews the objectives and rules of the mentoring process, draws up a mentoring agreement, shares experiences of the mentoring process and develops interaction skills.
NOTE! The course is open to all degree students, regardless of campus, programme or orientation. Master's students can enrol, but the credits are not included in the degree.
Material is found in Moodle.
The course is implemented in a work-oriented manner in cooperation with Haaga-Helia's alumni, who act as mentors in the program.
There is no exam included in the implementation.
A similar mentoring programme will be organised in Finnish. It is called Uralle vauhtia alumnien avulla, STU009HH1A-3005.
