Schedule of Mentoring Program Events

How often?

Mentoring partners typically meet once a month for approximately one hour.

 

Where?

Meetings between mentoring pairs takes place at a location of their choosing. Mentoring partners do not necessarily have to be geographically close. Technological advances mean that virtual mentoring meetings can be just as successful and rewarding as in-person meetings.

 

Structure?

Every mentoring relationship is different. We encourage you to decide the structure for your program at your first meeting. It is up to the mentee to decide how formal, structured or informal they wish the relationship to be. 

Experience shows us that the most successful mentoring experiences involve a level of structure, with the mentee being
clear on their objectives and arriving prepared for each mentoring session.

ACC Australia provide all the tools you need to make the program a success. Online, self-paced training is provided for both mentors and mentees, equipping both with the skills and expectations they need to get the most from the experience. Any participants who complete the training will be award two CPD points.

A program handbook, forms, templates and guidelines are available in the Mentoring Program resource library and the Mentoring Program Facilitator keeps in regular contact to provide tips and prompts for next steps.

 

Extras?

Opening and closing events will be held in Melbourne and Sydney.

Mentors and Mentees will be eligible for nomination in the Mentee of the Year and Mentor of the Year Awards.

Participants in the mentoring program receive special discounts at national and many state events.
