UIS Learning and Development: Mentoring in Practice (Unit 2)

Tue 20 Jul 2021


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

Mentoring can be a really useful 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 2) and part of the UIS' Mentoring training journey, for all mentees and mentors enrolled in the 2021-22 programme. This interactive workshop is designed to give an overview and introduction to mentoring, giving the opportunity to explore the key benefits for mentors and mentees, practice some key skills needed for both 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 on the Mentoring Scheme 2021-22.


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