Mentoring has become a highly popular form of personal and professional development. It can enhance networks, interpersonal awareness and professional relationships. The University Mentoring Programme provides a platform through which professional experiences can be shared on a one-to-one, informal basis thus providing support at various stages throughout your career. If you are interested in exploring mentoring as a personal development tool, or interested in becoming a mentor yourself, find out more by reading our Mentoring booklet below and talk to your line manager.

Feedback from you
“It was good to have the space and opportunity to think about what mentoring involved. It was also good to know that the University (or its representatives!) recognised the positive potential of rolling out mentoring for wider (voluntary) uptake. I think many people would appreciate having mentoring available”.
“I now know more what is expected of me as a mentor and I will approach my meetings with my mentee with a clearer idea of what we should be doing!”
