Personal and Professional Development


Research has proven the value of mentoring for improving your work experience, and this is recognised by having a University mentoring policy for newly appointed staff.

Mentors can:

  • Act as an impartial sounding board
  • Create valuable space and time for you to ‘stand back’ and review where you are now, where you want to get to, and how best to get there
  • Contribute viewpoints, advice, and information from their own knowledge, experience and expertise
  • Assist you to achieve changes and goals to enhance your professional and personal life
