Mentoring for Research Staff

The Graduate School runs a formal mentoring programme for research staff.  The programme runs recruitment each year from November, with mentoring pairs meeting February to August. 

There are many advantages to mentoring, including: 

For the mentor:

  • The opportunity to develop research leadership skills
  • The chance to make a positive difference to a colleague
  • The experience of gaining insight into challenges faced by other researchers

For the mentee:

  • The opportunity to broaden your horizons and network outside of your department
  • The chance to be inspired by someone who has overcome research challenges in their career
  • The experience of setting goals and gaining advice in a non-judgemental setting  

If you are a member of GCU research staff and would like to apply for the mentoring scheme, either as a mentor or mentee, please use the online application form.
