This mentoring skills workshop is open to current mentees and eligible post-doctoral researchers interested in joining the Academy’s Mentoring programme.
Our Mentoring Masterclasses are an introduction to the Developmental Model of mentoring that we support, to help you get the most out of your mentoring relationship. They are participatory and focussed on developing techniques, learning best practice and discussing the opportunities and challenges of being in a mentoring relationship, as well as networking with other people in the programme.
As a result of this afternoon workshop, you will have a clear understanding of:
- The roles of mentor and mentee.
- How to establish and manage expectations.
- How to deal with potential challenges during a mentoring relationship.
- How to ask good questions and give and receive feedback.
Registration is mandatory – please fill in the form to the right.
The Academy’s Mentoring programme is open to all postdoctoral Clinical Lecturers and Clinician Scientist Fellows, or equivalent posts, postdoctoral non-clinical MRC Research Fellows, as well as our Award Holders and grant applicants. Our mentor pool includes Academy Fellows, NIHR Senior Investigators and NIHR Research Professors.
