We are currently developing a mentoring programme. Through this programme, both mentors and mentees will learn:
- How to motivate and lead others
- How to communicate effectively
- How to be an active listener
- How to set realistic and actionable career goals
- How to give and receive feedback and advice
Anyone can be a mentor. There is no need to obtain any formal qualifications in order to participate. All that is expected of mentors is to:
- Be contactable and able to respond in a reasonable timeframe
- Be available for consultation and advice when sought by their mentee
- Have at least three sessions with their mentees
The first step in becoming part of this unique programme is joining Âé¶¹ËÞÉáµçÊÓ¾çConnect. When setting up a profile, it will ask you what you would like to get from the site, whether that be offering services as a mentor, or being a mentee.
