In early 2006, a young team of Chartered Accountant professionals had an idea to establish a mentoring program for ACCA students (mentees) who want to obtain a BSc Hons degree in Applied Accounting from the Oxford Brookes University (OBU). The basic idea was to facilitate the preparation of a successful Research and Analysis Project (RAP) to students (mentees) by effective utilization of their core capabilities and offer high – quality mentoring services as per the prescribed guidelines of OBU. In 2007, this idea finally saw the light of day and Virtual Mentoring (“VM”) was established to implement the basic objective.
At first, the VM team was providing its services on a local level and was making its recognition as an authoritative institution. The year 2011 brought upon the expansion of our professional services across different countries. Our story is continuing with a growing number of successfully graduated students worldwide via our network.
Our main objective is to offer very high-quality mentoring services, which in turn will provide our students with internationally recognized qualification (i.e. BSc Hons. In Applied Accounting from OBU) and with an opportunity to actually utilize the acquired knowledge and experience in establishing themselves as valued and productive professionals in their respective fields.
There are many RAP mentoring service providers on the market today, but many of them fail to provide necessary skills which help mentees in their professional careers. We are changing this trend by offering a structured mentoring program that is aimed to provide detailed guidance which is specifically tailored to the individual needs of our students (mentees). We strive to engage our students (mentees) to be active participants rather than passive receivers of instructions, that is why our programs are tailored to enable maximum learning possibilities for our students (mentees).
Shortly: we teach our mentees “how to think , not what to think!”
