Access to Mentoring Joining will give you access to our bespoke mentoring system. You can search for your mentor of choice based on their skills, experience and availability, supporting a fully tailored experience exclusive to you.
We will manage the process and measure success, based on completion of the mentoring relationship and outcome of objectives agreed explicitly by and for you, giving you confidence that the experience will be exactly what you specify.
A mentor is defined in the Oxford Dictionary as an “experienced and trusted advisor”. Mentoring is about helping others develop in a positive way and more effectively. It is a relationship designed to build conﬁdence and support the mentee so that they can take control of their own development and progress. It is trust-based and conﬁdential and should help you to feel valued, represented, productive, self-fulfilled and rewarded;
To grow personally and professionally
To restructure or reprioritise your life
To overcome obstacles and barriers
To grow your career
Mentoring is not the same as training, teaching or coaching
Access to Training Our aim is to provide training for both mentors and mentees, to help you get the best out of your mentoring relationships, with free access to an on-line training programme, aimed both at mentors and mentees. We hope that as an organisation we will be providing the tools to train the mentors of the future. We also offer Experiential Training, currently on line, with plans to include training sessions in person when circumstances permit. The experiential training is paid for training and aimed mainly at existing and potential mentors, so mentees are welcome.
Training is live now, take a look and sign up for some training to improve your skills. Sessions are offered throughout the year so you will have the chance to choose a time that best suits your needs.
On-site training is also be available to organisations, and can be designed to suit your needs. So if you are going to use Mentors for Women to fulfil your mentoring needs, or if you are running your own internal mentoring programme please talk to us about how we can tailor a training package for you.
All our training is open to non members as well, at the non member rate.
