Sign-up Form for Mentees (postdocs)

DEADLINE 9:00am Monday 8th July 2019.

This is a developmental mentoring scheme. With developmental mentoring an experienced mentor helps you to develop your strengths and potential, and to identify your changing needs, values, aspirations, and what's most important to you. Mentors will not assist with Mentees’ CVs, grants, or act as references.

In order to take part in the mentoring programme, you are required to attend a 2-hour training session, 3:00 - 5:00 pm on 15th July 2019 at the Postdoc Centre @ Mill Lane.

Expectations:

  • Meetings are regular rather than as required (a minimum of 4-6 times a year)
  • Meetings generally last at least 30 minutes (but not too long, so no more than 60 minutes!)
  • The Mentee is responsible for scheduling meetings
  • The Mentee sets the agenda
  • Meetings should ideally be on neutral ground (though this might not always be possible)
  • Focus is on building the Mentee’s problem solving/self-efficacy skills, exploring solutions rather than advice/solutions
  • Either might prepare a summary, for their own use, which details the main issues and agreed actions
