Digital mentoring - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' (RICS) is excited to provide KS4 & 5 students students with the unique chance to learn more about the range of opportunities available within the surveying sector via digital mentoring!

Surveying is one of the most varied and rewarding jobs globally and offers:

  • The opportunity to develop transferrable skills

  • A chance to see the world whilst using state of the art technology.

The RICS Connectr portal will not only support schools in meeting Gatsby Benchmarks 4 & 5, it will also give students the opportunity to be supported on their self-development journey, whether that be academically or personally. The portal provides:

  • Safe-guarded access to digital mentors (RICS members). Students can connect with different mentors and ask questions relating to their day-to-day job, routes into the sector and industry knowledge.

  • Information about the wider surveying sector, the type of roles available and information about internships and work experience as well as, apprenticeship programmes.

  • Real life case studies and learning about current projects including a spotlight on the role of technology.

  • Bite sized learning content to help student understanding. Content can be used to compliment topics covered in Geography, Math, Design and Technology and Physics.

Everything students need to sign up and start talking to a mentor is within a fully secure and safeguarded platform. Students send the first message, and they will then receive a notification via their email when they get a reply from a mentor
