“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.”
Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring
The ACCENT Mentoring Programme is carried out jointly with the EU project ENSEMBLES, other EU projects will join. The first Mentor-Mentee pairs have successfully carried out or completed a mentoring process.
ACCENT T&E encourages you to become involved in this exciting opportunity as a Mentor or Mentee. Letters of intent (download here) should be sent to the ACCENT T&E Coordinator (Dr Evi Schuepbach; firstname.lastname@example.org).
ACCENT T&E recommends that Mentor-Mentee pairs discuss and agree on the goals to be achieved and sign a small contract (download here). The issue that the Mentee wishes to tackle with the Mentor is confidential. The mentoring period can run for a year or less. Mentoring can be carried out by email (if both parties agree), internet phone, or with face-to-face meetings. The mentoring period can run for a year or less; contacts are recommended to take place on a monthly basis.
The ACCENT Mentoring Programme is administered by the Task “Training & Education” and supported by the Gender Awareness Group.
