Supporting Research Through Mentoring
Posted on: 19 December 2018 by Nick Jones in 2018 Posts
If you are interested in supporting a colleague to enhance their research through mentoring, we are looking for volunteers to use their expertise and experience to help others to explore their professional goals, help them make plans to work towards their goals and encourage individual action.
The Organisational Development Team is running a one day training session for HSS staff to develop mentoring skills and to learn more about how to be an effective mentor (subject to sufficient interest).
The average time commitment for a mentoring relationship is 6 x 1 hour sessions but it’s entirely up to you to decide on a timeframe that suits your availability.
The philosophy underpinning mentoring is that both mentor and mentee gain value from working together and mentors have a genuine interest in supporting and developing others. Mentoring offers both personal and professional benefits deriving from the individual nature of the support being provided. Mentees who find the process valuable, often go on to support others in a mentoring capacity.
If you would like an opportunity to develop your skills in this area and to learn more about how to be an effective mentor, the Organisational Development Team is running a one day training session for HSS staff on Friday 18th January 2019 9.30 – 4.30pm. Please email Georgina and Maeva to reserve your place.
