Following the announcement at the recent Postgraduate Retreat, we are pleased to launch a pilot Mentoring Programme for Postgraduate Researchers. Dr Lois Calder, Dean of the Graduate School, introduces the programme in the video below. A copy of the slides can be accessed here.
We are now inviting expressions of interest. If you would like to be involved, we first ask you to please complete a short application form for PGR mentors or mentees, or for staff mentors. A training session was held on Tuesday 17 May for all mentors and mentees and a recording will be shared after you have signed up.
Partnerships will then begin a cycle of mentoring over 10 months from June 2022 to March 2023. The time commitment is approximately 10 x 45 mins meetings over 10 months, with additional support as agreed in between. Please refer to the Mentoring Programme Handbook for full details on what to expect.
The benefits of mentoring are significant for both mentors and mentees, and we hope you will take full advantage of the programme, which will allow you to develop skills and to enhance your support network!
