Mentoring relationship - frequency of contact
We require our mentors to volunteer a minimum of one hour each month to their mentee over the course of the scheme. Although this may not be in a one hour block each month. When you meet your mentee for the first time you can discuss the frequency and duration of your meetings.
Online mentor training course
Once you have registered as a mentor, we will then send you a mentor online training course. We require all mentors to complete this course before commencing a mentoring relationship.
These will vary and this is up to the mentor and mentee to decide during the first interactions and in the first meeting. We recommend meeting as many times as possible face to face, but understand this may not be feasible depending on work load and location. In this instance online communication methods can still lead to a successful and effective mentoring relationship.
We want to support you and your mentee throughout the mentoring scheme and ensure you are both benefiting from the experience. We will therefore be checking in at various points (usually half-way through and near the end). Of course, at any time please feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
At the end of the scheme we like to seek your feedback on your experience over the scheme and if there are any improvements we can make for the following year.
