Mentoring

The University-Wide Mentoring Scheme is available to all staff at Leeds and you can sign up to be a mentor or mentee. You can apply to join the mentoring scheme at any time throughout the year, with new mentoring partnerships set up 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.
