Steps in the Europlanet Mentorship scheme are as follows:

  • Identify your Mentoring strengths/needs
  • Enrol as Mentor/Mentee
  • Access guidelines and training modules
  • Await matching with Mentee/Mentor
  • Attend your first Mentor-Mentee e-meeting (e-mail, Skype, Zoom, etc.)
  • Discuss Mentoring goals
  • Engage & develop the Mentoring relationship
  • Plan for the future
  • Review and provide feedback on the Mentorship

Timeline:

We take matching Mentors and Mentees very seriously and aim to find synergies between a Mentor’s areas of strength and a Mentee’s mentoring needs. However, it can take time for us to find you a suitable mentoring partner and, in some cases, it may be months before we can identify an appropriate pairing.

The Europlanet Mentorship Platform will start with a pilot programme of Mentor-Mentee pairs working together from September to December 2020. We will ask for feedback from these first mentoring partnerships to ensure that the programme is working as effectively as possible and implement any changes needed. We aim to launch a full service in January 2021.
