PD211 (Introduction to Mentoring) - Mentoring for Mentors

Please note that this session is for QMUL staff only: bookings received from those without a staff role will be cancelled.

This half-day workshop is an introductory course for members of staff, aimed at discussing best-practice and ethical guidelines for mentors and for those looking for a mentor. The workshop will be interactive and participants are encouraged to bring and share their own experiences, hopes or concerns about mentoring.

The course aims to be both informative and motivational. Participants will be invited to create their own simple action plans of how to find a mentor or mentee (if they haven’t already found one) and of how to start the mentoring relationship.
