Your career development is important. That’s why Flinders University is once again offering you the opportunity to participate in the Professional Mentoring Program.
Mentoring programs are a widely established part of professional development in the higher education sector. The Professional Mentoring Program at Flinders is an opportunity for you to broaden your networks, increase your engagement in the workplace and strengthen your professional practice.
Nominations for the 2024 mentoring program are now open (closing COB Monday 11 December 2023).
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is a formal relationship between an experienced professional (mentor) and a less experienced professional (mentee). A mentor supports the professional growth of the mentee by sharing knowledge gained through their experiences. Mentors provide an independent sounding board, an alternative perspective and a trusted connection to the broader University landscape.
How does the program work?
Mentors and mentees will be matched using a structured process which reflects:
- each partner's skills, knowledge, goals and expectations for the program,
- the mentor and mentee will be from different areas of the University, and
- the classification levels of each partner.
