Mentoring service

Building on the e-learning Introduction to Mentoring programme, the Society for Education and Training (SET) offers a mentoring service to provide support and encouragement to members facing work or career decisions, opportunities or dilemmas.

There is much evidence to show that a good mentor can make a positive difference to anyone working on their professional development. At the same time, the opportunity provides a mutually beneficial experience for mentors to enhance their skills in supporting and developing others, and provide new perspectives on their own practice. 

SET recognises the benefits of offering a mentoring service and is:

  • Setting up a register of mentors: The Register will consist of members of SET who are highly experienced and skilled in their chosen fields who also have experience of coaching and mentoring.
  • Offering a matching service to link potential mentors with mentees: Mentees will be matched to mentors who have the most appropriate skills and experience to support them in their professional development. Mentors can offer face to face support, or they can offer guidance through telephone calls or virtual meetings.
