Register your interest to become a mentor
The definition of a mentor is “an experienced and trusted adviser”.
Our 2024 President, Tanya de Hoog, is a passionate advocate for mentoring, saying: “When we mentor people we get so much back ourselves because that relationship is also about knowledge transfer.”
Mentoring for paths to membership
If you're a qualified member, being a mentor is a valuable way to share your expertise and help someone on their path to membership, to help them develop and meet the core objectives related to our membership grades.
Mentoring for development and knowledge exchange
While mentoring for paths to membership is important, it can also be about offering mentees support for other areas of their development and technical excellence.
For example, you can mentor someone to guide them through career challenges and opportunities, or to assist them with their competence and knowledge. It’s about sharing your expertise and ideas to help someone grow.
Mentoring offers myriad opportunities for all involved, helping the mentee to evolve and grow. That’s why we’re asking for people to register their interest in being a mentor. This is so we can gauge the appetite for a more formal programme in 2024.
