New and existing mentoring-type schemes in all Faculties and across the University need to be supported and promoted to ensure their sustainability.
Staff and students - are you already involved in managing a mentoring, coaching, buddying or similar scheme at Brookes?
Let us know about your scheme so we can include it in this project »
This project is about providing a set of tools and resources (seven ‘deliverables’) to support existing mentoring activity and to encourage new schemes to develop.
The team have finished deliverable one which is a review of mentoring in higher education.
This deliverable is being used to inform the deliverables three and four which is the guidance materials and the online training for mentors and mentees.
At this phase of the project, the team is working on deliverable two and trying to find out about all the different types of mentoring activity.
