What is a CERT Mentor?
Starting at University can be a big transition and we want to make it as easy as possible for all students. The Collaborative Engagement and Retention Team (CERT) focus on building strong communities across NTU so that we can make first-year students feel at home. We work with student mentors to run events and activities that help first years to settle in at University. Every first-year student is assigned a mentor from the same course as them in a higher year.
New to NTU?
As a first year, you have an assigned CERT mentor who is there to help you settle into University. You probably met them in your first week. All mentors wear bright blue t-shirts when their working. Mentors have been specially selected to help you throughout your first year and to encourage you to take part in the many opportunities available to you through the University and Students’ Union. If you need any help getting in touch with your mentor, please email CERT@ntu.ac.uk
How you can get involved
Each year, we recruit around 600 student mentors to join our team. Student mentors start their work in Welcome Week. Recruitment usually starts in March and is advertised on FutureHub. It’s a great opportunity to get some experience working with the University, while getting paid. You’ll also pick up some great skills for your CV including communication, leadership and event planning. If you’re interested in getting involved as a mentor, please email CERT@ntu.ac.uk
