“We help students from social mobility cold spots and areas of disadvantage across the country. By offering mentoring opportunities, it means that every student of ours can have a relationship on a 1:1 level. We found that Guider was the simplest platform to use and we also found we got on well with the people at Guider. So it was the synergy and the user friendliness that allowed us to take the plunge and use Guider.”

Your questions, answered

Why is mentoring and peer learning so effective for universities?

Both mentoring and peer learning draw on the expertise of your people and create lasting connections for learning and growth.

In a university setting, your greatest asset is your people. Setting up formal channels for students, staff and academic faculty to connect through mentoring multiplies learning and support across the organisation.

What is mentoring software?

If you’re considering starting a mentoring program, you’ve likely come across mentoring software, such as Guider. There are different types of mentoring software but they are all designed to facilitate the organisation and management of effective mentoring programs.

This includes matching mentors and mentees, scheduling sessions, and tracking progress. If you want to scale your mentoring program effectively, mentoring software is essential. You can learn more about mentoring software on our blog.

How does mentoring software work?

Here at Guider, our mentoring software works using a sophisticated matching algorithm with a 96.5% matching accuracy. Users input their information and are matched with several potential mentors, giving them the power to choose. They are then able to communicate, book meetings and find additional resources through the platform, which also provides real-time metrics to help hit your success criteria.

To find out more about how Guider’s platform works, take a look at our guide.

Can I run multiple programs at once with Guider?

You can indeed! With our mentoring software you can set-up and run multiple programs with ease.

Create programs that send targeted support to different groups and run them all in one place. With Guider, you can truly make mentoring accessible to all.
