The University-Wide Mentoring Scheme is available to all staff at the University of Leeds and you can apply to be a mentor or mentee. Applications to be a mentor or mentee can be made any time with matching taking place twice a year in May and November.
The mentoring experience is mutually beneficial and rewarding – it allows colleagues to share knowledge and skills with others, supporting them to achieve their individual objectives. To find out more you can watch and read case studies of colleagues’ experiences of mentoring.
There are many different types of mentoring relationships, such as peer-to-peer, reciprocal and reverse, or group, but they all involve the exchange of knowledge in a confidential and supportive environment.
For information on how to register as a mentor or a mentee, learn how the mentoring scheme works, find additional resources and developmental opportunities, please use the links below. To sign up for the scheme complete the mentoring scheme registration form, which will then be used to match you with a mentor or mentee.
I am now a peer mentor to a female colleague, helping her to develop her leadership skills. She has since secured two consecutive leadership roles in undergraduate medical education.
