Watch the Introduction Webinar. It will provide you with essential information about the program and what is expected from the participants. Likewise, it will give you an introduction to the concept of mentorship and the relationship between mentor and mentee.
Secondly, we encourage you to read the Guidelines document so you can familiarise yourself with some basic rules that all participants must follow.
After this, if you are interested in taking part in the pilot as a Mentor, please watch the Second Webinar for Mentors. This webinar will cover more in detail the role of a mentor, what is expected from you during the program, and the support and training that you will receive.
Download the Qualities of a Good Mentor (self-rating questionnaire) and the Mentor Session Record template referred to in the webinar.
Lastly, submit a Mentor Application Form to our e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org before October 24, 2022. If you are successful, we will invite you to the training sessions.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR POTENTIAL MENTORS: mentors will be trained through a series of webinars and live workshops. Please, ensure you are available on one of the following dates before applying to be a mentor:
- Cohort One: Thursday, November 10 and Thursday, November 24 at 08:00 GMT.
- Cohort Two: Tuesday, November 15 and Tuesday, November 29 at 17:00 GMT.
If you cannot attend a session, you can do so at a corresponding session in the other cohort. Sadly, if you are unable to attend the training sessions, you cannot participate in the program as a mentor. Please take this into account before applying.
