Welcome to Click-on Mentoring Toolkit | Aspire
Click-on Mentoring is an online program designed for regional and remote students to increase their awareness of post school pathways and career options through online discussions with university student mentors.
This toolkit sets out to provide practitioners with an additional strategy for engaging with regional and remote communities.It is based on a successful pilot undertaken by ASPIRE in 2017 where UNSW students connected online with geographically isolated high school students.
While face to face mentoring is prevalent in metropolitan schools, regional schools often miss out because of geographical isolation. This pilot project examined e-mentoring as a scheme to address the difficulties of a sustainable widening participation strategy over vast distances.
It is hoped that other universities may find this toolkit useful in setting up a similar program as part of their strategy to reach out to school students to provide them with additional support on future career choices.
