The application process for the 2018 intake of Fast Forward 15 mentees is open.
During the 12-month programme, mentees are encouraged to achieve new goals and break personal barriers through one to one mentoring and group tasks designed to build confidence, character and individual networks.
The closing date for applications is 28 February 2018.
Potential mentees are encouraged to bring their applications to life with digital platforms such as short film CVs and infographics. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"It is a privilege to be able to continue the scheme as a free programme, thanks to the support of the industry, our clients, peers and suppliers," said Sharpe.
"Once again, the mentors are inspiring, and the course content and output gets better and better. Each year we are inundated with requests to join and we’ve also seen an increase of applications from overseas."
