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.
