Mentoring services of RAP for OBU

We provide complete mentoring services to ACCA students, so they can become eligible to obtain a BSc. Hons. degree in applied accounting. As RAP mentors, we have very well qualified professionals with vast teaching and mentoring experience. The RAP mentors are assigned to the engaged students (mentees) according to their expertise in the specific topic so that our mentees will get the high-quality mentoring service that will ultimately impact their grade.

In accordance with the guidelines in Section 6 of the Information Pack, the mentee needs to arrange three mandatory meetings, the scope and agenda of these meetings are clearly defined in Section of the Information Pack. The “VM” approach toward the mandatory meetings is clearly outlined below:

Phase 1 – Planning (1st Meeting)

Providing proper information so mentees will understand the role of a mentor through creating RAP and keep expectations as allowed by guidelines by OBU.

–  Guidance about our overall mentoring approach and resolve specific queries/confusions of mentees at the beginning stage.

–  Clarification of all terms and conditions agreed by mentees before formal arrangement is made (if required)

–  Guidance in appropriate selection of topic for RAP

–  Guidance in appropriate selection of company for RAP

–  Guidance on overall goals and objectives along with research questions of RAP

–  Guidance on overall approach towards completion of various tasks
