Our cross-industry mentoring scheme

The ITP has Mentors and Mentees who are ready to be matched!

Mentoring is an essential component of both personal and professional development. It can offer guidance and support on your path to success, enabling employees to grow as leaders and professionals.

As a result of their constant exposure to new perspectives and ideas, employees who work with mentors develop the habit of learning from others. Mentoring also improves their capacity for overcoming challenges and adapting to change.

People can learn a lot about their industry, the most recent trends, and best practises through mentoring. It is a powerful tool that supports employees' learning and development in all spheres of their lives.

Some of the benefits of mentoring include:

  • Fosters a learning mindset

  • Helps the individual build relationships

  • Helps the individual to develop skills

  • Increases confidence

  • Provides support and guidance

  • Enhances leadership abilities

  • Fosters diversity

  • Reduces staff turnover

  • Increases employee engagement

  • Encourages professional growth

  • Fosters career advancement

  • Induces accountability in organisations

  • Helps employees navigate challenging situations

  • Increases chance of success

The idea is that the senior professional (the mentor) will impart their knowledge and expertise onto the junior professional (mentee).

It’s not only beneficial for the mentee however, as many of our experienced mentors tell us they gain insights from newly trained or qualified staff and that cross-mentoring is works for both parties.

We've been running our cross-industry scheme for a number of years, you can find out more info on the link below:

Thinking of becoming a mentor? It's a simple and straight-forward process, and we'll be on hand to help.

I’ve always relied on the advice of people around me, but we tend to surround ourselves with likeminded people, mentoring has opened my eyes to this echo chamber.

Something I believe too many people are missing in this current algorithmic age.
