Mentoring

The SPDM would like to offer a diverse group of mentors in a way that is as straightforward and effective as possible. Many people have a preconception that a mentor is someone with years of experience but this is not always the case. If you are willing to share skills, knowledge, take an interest in what motivates others and can give constructive feedback you could make a great mentor.

The SPDM is here to support the development of all mentees to help you as you grow, learn and thrive through effective mentoring partnerships. Remember, the successful relationship is developed as a result of participants spending quality and productive time together.

The SPDM facilitates the introduction of potential mentors with mentees and provides a framework and guidelines for successful mentor/mentee relationships.

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is about more than giving advice, it’s about motivating and empowering and helping the other person understand themselves and their aims – and how they can get there.

It's also about helping each other resolve issues, whether directly or more often through advice and sharing experiences.
