Your President, Andrew Adegbola and BTE College Officer, Praise Ishola are proud to present the BAME Mentoring and Ambassador Scheme

What is it?

Sheffield Hallam University has a diverse student body, including Black, African, Asian, Arabic and other minority ethnic students. We use the term BAME to refer to students that are of, but not excluded to, Asian, Arabic, Chinese or African and/or Caribbean descent. The BAME Mentoring and Ambassador scheme is an opportunity for students, staff and alumni of Sheffield Hallam from the BAME community to support and represent BAME students. 

The BAME mentoring scheme will help to support students from Black, African, Asian and minority ethnic groups to achieve academic success and to help with their development. This scheme will provide an opportunity for experienced and knowledgeable BAME students, staff and alumni who have experience of living, studying or working in the UK to support and guide less experienced or less knowledgeable students from a BAME background. The scheme will involve learning and development meetings between the mentor and mentee.
