For mentors

  • Students who are submitting their Research and Analysis Project are required to have a Registered Mentor and will be asked to enter their mentor email details when they submit their RAP.

    Mentors for the BSc (Hons) Applied Accounting must be one of the following:

    • Full ACCA Member  (we cannot accept Affiliate Members unless they meet one of the following)
    • The student's Tutor at an ACCA Learning Provider (we need to know which Learning Provider the mentor works for) 
    • The student's Line Manager or Senior Colleague  (we require a work email to be registered)

    In order to become a Registered Mentor, you must complete the Oxford Brookes Online Mentoring Course. This Course has been designed to support the growth of professional mentoring skills in the practitioner community.  It provides you with a knowledge and skills base, and learning materials, so you can mentor students through the RAP.  The course comprises of four modules:

    • Understanding the BSc Applied Accounting
    • Understanding Mentoring
    • Mentoring Competencies
    • Models for Mentoring

    It will also provide skills and additional resources that support your personal development and can be applied in normal working contexts.

    Once you have successfully completed the training course you have the option of being included in the global database of mentors this would enable us to pass your details to students.

    If you are an ACCA member, studying this course may count towards CPD as long as the material is relevant to your training and development needs. ACCA advises, as a guide when allocating your CPD units, that one hour of learning equates to one hour of CPD. Upon successful completion of the programme, you can be awarded with a certificate which may qualify for up to 6 hours of CPD credits. Please contact accamentoring@brookes.ac.uk for more information.

    You do not have to meet your mentor face to face but may, if more convenient, use some form of Video link (such as Skype).  You are required to make a PowerPoint presentation to your Mentor and so telephone and email are not acceptable options.

    Important information

    False statements in application which are found at any stage will result in a mentor being barred from Mentoring.  We demand and expect full professionalism at all times.  It must be noted that Mentoring is NOT intended to be a full time job, Mentors are expected to be in full-time employment elsewhere.

    Mentors are not employees of Oxford Brookes University and we do not set or control any fees that they may charge students.

    Oxford Brookes will retain the right to remove a mentor from the registered list of mentors if they consider the standard of mentoring shown by the mentor falls below the professional qualities that Oxford Brookes University would expect. This would be the case where a mentor is implicated in a series of proven student Academic Misconduct Cases.
