Sporting Excellence Leadership Mentoring

In 2016 the XXI club mentoring programme commenced where volunteers from our Sporting Alumni XXI Club met and shared experiences with focus sport Athletic Union (AU) Club Captains. We established the programme to support club captains with balance leading a club with managing their studies and other demands that arise during life at the University. The scheme was extremely successful, with several club captains referencing the benefit of having an independent mentor to support them.

For 2017/18 we are opening the offer to all AU club captains, not just those from focus sport clubs.

There are seven spaces available on the mentoring programme, club captains are invited to apply for a place on the programme by filling out the form on the right hand side of this page.

Our 2017/18 XXI club mentors range from ex Olympians, world champions and hugely successful businessmen and women.
