Being a Mentor

Working Together

January is the perfect time to set personal and professional goals for the year ahead. Becoming a mentor or mentee can help you to achieve those goals! An example of how mentoring can be rewarding to both mentors and mentees is the partnership between Jo and her two mentees at RPS; Darrell and Ryan.

A Mentor’s Perspective

A number of our members who sign up to be mentors have been mentees themselves at some point in their career. It was Ancel’s experience of being a mentee which influenced his decision to sign up to the mentoring platform.
