Mentor's Login
Welcome Back Mentor

As a mentor, you will not only gain the satisfaction of watching your mentee progress, but you will also have the opportunity to practice your leadership and management skills, develop your communication and interpersonal skills and gain a broader and deeper understanding of your own working environment.

The profile you create will provide potential mentees with information to help them decide whether you would make a suitable match to support them with their professional growth. The type of information that helps mentees decide includes: personal attributes; career path; professional experience; work achievements; specific knowledge areas; membership of networks and associations and personal interests.

We expect mentors to attend a one day training workshop to: introduce the philosophy of the University of Liverpool Mentoring Network; define the arrangements for the mentoring relationship; introduce techniques and tools to support you to be effective in the role and explore the challenges and barriers and how these can be overcome.

Members of the network are also invited to Mentor Network meetings and events to enable mentors and mentees to meet face to face and discuss challenges and techniques and learn from each other.

Mentors and Mentees are also given access to the VITAL environment for the Mentoring Network where a range of training and other resources are available.

You will also receive update emails to keep you information of training and networking events.

Potential Mentees will contact you directly to discuss their development needs based on the information provided in your profile. If you both agree to enter into a mentoring relationship you will need to let us know that you have started a relationship. This will form the basis for the relationship between yourself and your mentee and will hide your record in the system (unless you choose otherwise) for the duration of the relationship.
