Thank you for your interest in being a mentee and for taking the time to fill out this form. It helps us match the right mentees with the right mentors, which is what the mentoring process is all about.
To get guidance on your Expression of Interest Form or if you have any questions about the mentoring process itself, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
What is mentoring?
Our methodology is simple, we carefully pair up young creatives with a mentor who works in their chosen sector.
The role of a mentor
The role of the mentor is to be a critical friend to their mentee - to act as both a support and sounding board, but to also challenge when needed. A mentor gives tools and advice to their mentee to progress professionally, empowering them to make connections and to progress off their own merits.
They support, champion, encourage and occasionally challenge their mentee whilst creating opportunities for them into jobs and onto career progression in a fast-changing, competitive and highly networked workplace.
The pairings are encouraged to have contact outside of the facilitated monthly sessions in order to see real impact of the relationship.
We have found that by encouraging the building of relationships between our mentees and mentors, they develop bonds that stretch far beyond the programme, creating new networks and renewed confidence to proceed in a world that all too often is about who you know, rather than what you know or how well you do it.
Mentee training and onboarding
At the start of every mentoring programme, we provide training and a handbook for our mentees (and mentors) containing best practice and other things to bear in mind. You are partners, your mentor is here to support and guide you they are not here to do the work for you. It is your responsibility to follow up and to do the work in between the mentoring sessions. This is how you will benefit most from the process.
There are options in the second section of this form to upload answers to the questions in video or audio format. But, please let us know if you would like this form in a different format by contacting email@example.com
