The Mentoring Programme

The mentoring programme CrossMentES at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is designed as a one-to-one mentoring scheme.

What does this mean?

  • A mentee (a student at our University) and a mentor (this could be someone who is a specialist or manager from a company) enter an exclusive mentoring relationship in tandem.

What do we expect from our mentors?

  • Mentoring is not the same as classical coaching. We do not expect mentees to be professionally supervised or receive coaching in personal competences.   
  • We hope that you, as mentor, will encourage and support your young mentee along their life path with your work and life experience, your personal background and knowledge, your competence and empathy. You should help them find their own solutions and recognize and avoid potential stumbling blocks.

As a potential mentor, you are also welcome to send us a filled-in Mentor’s PDF participation form.
