Mentoring with the IET

Do you enjoy actively listening and taking a personal interest in others? Do you thrive on challenging assumptions and helping other to  explore their skills, aptitudes and assumptions? 

The IET is looking to recruit members to act as Mentors in order to support members in their career stages. Mentoring is most often defined as a professional relationship in which an experienced person
(the mentor) assists another (the mentee) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth.

The period of appointment is usually at the discretion of the staff member running the mentoring service but will vary depending on the needs of the individual mentee.

Training will be provided, both online and through physical workshops. These tend to be evening workshops held locally within the local network, dependent on demand and are free of charge.

The IET also runs a more detailed one day mentoring course for which there is a fee, although mentors volunteering through the mentoring service are eligible for a 50% discount on the advertised price.
