1. Setting up your Overview Page

Setting up your Overview Page helps to outline the programme structure and expectations upon mentors and mentees. This ensures they know what they need to do which increases portal activity.

  • Once you have logged into your program portal using the Admin account provided by the FutureLab team, you will see this Overview page:
