The mentoring network exists to create a framework for support and guidance; to ensure successful working relationships; to encourage the sharing of skills, ideas and knowledge; and to open up contacts, networks and opportunities. It is also about preparing for and maintaining Chartered Geographer status and professional standards.
Those interested in mentoring or being mentored should submit an application form. Mentors and mentees will be matched based on their level of experience, expertise, ambitions and preferences. A mentoring contract, which both parties must discuss and sign, will be administered by the Professional Officer which will create the basis of the mentoring relationship.
Guidance documents have been developed, written in consultation with the Final Assessment Committee, and benchmarked against other professional accreditations.
