Coaching and Mentoring


Welcome to HEEoE Coaching and Mentoring section. 


Our vision in the East of England is that mentoring is available for all trainees to enable them to not only reach their full potential but beyond. Mentoring techniques are designed to enable the exploration of needs, motivations, desires, skills and thought processes to assist a mentee in making lasting change in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.



"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."

  (Parsloe, 1992)



This is an exciting time in the East of England and there are more mentoring schemes being discussed and launched each month as well as those already up and running. Our role is to facilitate more Specialties and Schools in setting up and running their own mentoring schemes as well as offering support to those already in place.

We're busy developing lots of resources and although the site is still under construction there is already much we can offer you, below is just a selection.

Whether you're a mentee, mentor, thinking of setting up a scheme or already running one why not pop the kettle on, sit down, and have an explore...




Health Education England - East of England is committed to increasing access to mentoring for trainees across the East Of England.  In order to deliver our vision the EoE have appointed a mentoring team including Maria Cooke, Programme Lead for Coaching and Mentoring, and two Mentoring Fellows Laura Blackburn and Catriona Macdougall. Links to their pen portraits can be found on each name.





Coming soon...
