UIS Learning and Development: Mentoring in Practice (Unit 3)

Wed 27 Sep 2023


UIS facilitates a mentoring scheme exclusively for the University's IT community and UIS' internal staff.

Mentoring can be a handy tool in supporting colleagues to develop their professional lives and careers, in both roles as a mentor and mentee.

This is a welcome event (Unit 3) and part of the UIS' Mentoring learning journey, for all mentees and mentors enrolled in the 20223-24 programme. This interactive workshop is designed to give an overview and introduction to mentoring, practice some essential skills needed for mentors and mentees, mistakes to avoid, and become familiar with some simple models and tools to support the mentoring partnership and maximise its value and impact.

Target audience

UIS and IT staff enrolled in the Mentoring Scheme 2023-24.


Mentors and mentees need to complete Unit 1 and Unit 2 self-taught exercises before attending Unit 3 (Mentoring in practice)


Number of sessions: 1
