Our popular mentoring programme has recently been enhanced in the light of feedback from participants, and now offers three options to suit different career needs. Whichever route you choose, the diversity and experience of the OUBS network enables you to develop dynamic and creative partnerships to achieve your goals – whether you’re a mentee or a mentor.
This programme offers mentees one year’s mentoring with 1-2 hours of active contact each month. Mentors will agree an approach with you that best meets your needs; encourage you to express and discuss your ideas and concerns and understanding of your current situation; help you set realistic and practical goals; and challenge you to progress and achieve them.
This option offers three months’ focused career mentoring sessions, 1-2 hours of active contact each month, which covers the mentoring of a single priority goal, i.e. preparing for an interview or searching for a new role.
When you register on either of the above programmes, you’ll receive a questionnaire about your career experience and what you want from mentoring. We’ll match you with a suitable mentor; and send you an information pack outlining what you can expect from the programme, the roles and responsibilities of mentors and mentees, how to prepare for your first meeting, and how to get the best from your learning.
If you have specific questions or queries about our career mentoring programme, please contact Janet Barker.
