Making the Most of Mentoring Programme
Helped me realise the importance of the mentee preparing for meetings and driving the relationship

A successful mentoring relationship relies on both mentor and mentee to make it work. Mentees need to take ownership of their career development for mentoring to be successful. Our Making the Most of Mentoring Programme provides mentees with an understanding of mentoring. It gives them practical tools and techniques to develop their careers and drive the mentoring relationship.
