The value of mentoring & work experience for young people is globally understood, but access to such opportunities can often come down to the connections an individual has. We believe, however, that the phrase "it's not what you know, it's who you know" is a principle of networking that leaves people behind.
Wiseup helps students who feel disconnected from the world of work gain invaluable insight whilst forming lasting professional networks. Students from all backgrounds thus feel inspired to make informed decisions about their future careers, regardless of network or circumstances.
We have been running our own professional mentoring platform since 2019, and built a community of 150+ Wiseup Mentors. Along the way, we have learnt what truly impactful mentoring looks like. We have delivered many mentoring programmes for young people, supporting such partners as The Manchester College and The Kickstart Scheme.
