FAQs about becoming an Angel

Who will contact me?

Current students at St Cuthbert's Society will be able to get in touch with you via your preferred method of contact.

How often will I be contacted?

Students will contact you as and when they need advice, but will be understanding if other committments take priority. It is entirely your own choice whether to continue contact with a student.

What will I be asked?

Usually students will be looking to get a better idea of a specific field that interests them, or will have questions about the best method to approach a field.

What is expected of me as an Angel?

As an Angel, you should be willing to respond to students' queries with relevant and useful information on your field of expertise. You are not expected to offer work experience, CV-checking or employment opportunities unless you choose to do so. It is clearly understood by students that you are giving your opinion in confidence and as a volunteer.

What do I get in return?

As well as the warm glow of knowing that you're helping the next generation of Cuthspeople, you'll also receive honorary membership of Cuth's SCR and get invitations to Cuth's events in Durham and UK-wide.
