At whatever stage of your career, we encourage you to think about whether having a mentor would be helpful to you. Whether you are interested in being a mentor or finding one, the links on the right-hand side of this page provide useful information.
The schemes operate broadly on an annual cycle: advertising the schemes early in the year, making matches in February/March and evaluating the impact of mentoring in the following autumn.
We recognise that there may be requests for mentoring outside of these times and we will still aim to respond positively and find a suitable mentor.
