Become an IET mentor

Are you professionally registered? Enhance your professional development by supporting others towards professional registration.

Mentor registration

Mentors are useful at any stage in a member's career but particularly at times of rapid development or major change. They are people who will listen, challenge and help members review their progress in order to encourage them to make the most of their opportunities and progress in their careers. Mentors may have completely different backgrounds from those of the people they are helping. A mentoring relationship is likely to last some time and it is likely that several meetings will take place.

Registration process

On receipt of your mentor registration form, the IET will register you as a mentor on to our central database. You will then be sent a letter and mentor welcome pack containing a variety of information on mentoring and mentor training. Please note: the role of a mentor is voluntary and unremunerated.

Linking process

When an application for a mentor is received, we search our database for the most local mentor to the mentee. Details of your mentoring linking will be sent to you by email to the address stated on your mentor registration form. 

Mentoring service co-ordinators

Most local networks have a mentoring service co-ordinator who act as a local point of contact to inform mentors of any mentoring meetings in your area and to assist with any mentoring issues you may have.
