Potential mentors and mentees will administer the process through software designed for managing mentoring and coaching programmes.
The mentor is expected to attend a training session and develop a range of tools to use in the mentoring sessions. Mentors are also expected to be open minded in who they are matched with colleagues can be from across the University.
The mentee is expected to take the lead in terms of planning meetings, drawing up the agenda for meetings and completing tasks agreed with their mentor.
As this process will begin with a pilot (see below), we cannot guarantee there will be enough mentors and mentees to match everyone, but will work to try to do so.
It is possible to be both a mentor and a mentee, and also to be a participant in any coaching programme. Again, it is up to the individual to manage their time commitments responsibly.
