Become an online mentor with IME

By becoming an online mentor, you can guide a young unemployed person towards his or her dream career and help them identify their future path.

We try to match you with a young person with aspirations within your field of expertise so you can be the expert and share your insights into the role and industry. We provide all the training and materials you need to mentor the young person and we will support you every step of the way.

What’s in it for you?

In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to shape the future of a young person in need, you will also receive the following benefits:

Accredited Training – Level 4 Management & Leadership Training

This training will not only help you become a better mentor but also a better manager. You’ll learn how to coach, motivate others, plan effectively and much more. At the end of your mentorship you will receive a certificate detailing your Level 4 accreditation in Management & Leadership, awarded by OCN Credit for Learning (part of the Open College Network Group)  to aid your career progression and prospects.

Support throughout your experience

You will be assigned a mentor support worker to support you while you mentor and we provide mentor training and a structured programme of topics for you to discuss with your mentee over 11 sessions, taking you through the mentorship step by step. You also receive a range of helpful resources to use with their mentee to help them achieve their goal.


We have designed the mentorship scheme to be time-effective and efficient so there is no need to leave the office (unless you want to), as communication can take place through our online mentor platform. Our mentoring course offers an ‘online approach’ and only requires one hour per week, it makes it perfect for busy working professionals looking for a way to make a difference from their desk and without having to give up too much of their time.
