UKSBM Mentoring Scheme

Pilot Mentoring Scheme

The Pilot Mentoring Scheme has been active for over 2 years, matching 5 mentors to mentees. Feedback received from both mentors and mentees was extremely positive. Some quotes include:

“I found the mentor’s perspective, questions and initial thoughts helpful.”

“I found the pilot mentoring scheme extremely valuable.”

“ The mentor has been very supportive and encouraging, offering a fresh perspective on career opportunities, and giving great practical advice”

“I enjoyed the interaction and it also made me think about own work/approach to working so very helpful so far!”

“Thinking about advice to give to mentee was valuable to me personally and in terms of my own interactions with others in my own institution.”
