“Mentoring is the transfer of knowledge and experience for mutual benefit”.
WENTs have identified an interest from trainees at all levels, and from Consultants, irrespective of gender, in participating in a mentoring scheme. Having the opportunity to discuss your aspirations and reflect upon and resolve your own problems with someone who is supportive and experienced is invaluable. It provides a “safe talking space” away from your usual place of work to be honest and open about your thoughts on your professional life. The initial WENTS schemes is being supported and expanded by ENT UK
Mentoring is usually conducted by a senior, experienced person. It is a supportive form of development, and focuses on long term goals and life ambitions. It is directed toward general knowledge and thinking, as opposed to specific tasks or jobs. It can help a person manage their careers and improve skills, increase confidence, improve personal and professional networks, and provides an opportunity to discuss personal issues productively.
Through a mentoring scheme we aim to partner volunteer mentors and mentees with each other. We are currently requesting people to complete our questionnaire to help gather volunteers and information to allow suitable partnering, based on level of training and guidance requested.
For anyone who would like to be part of the mentoring scheme please feel free to complete the survey and we can include you in the mentoring project. Just click on this link:
We run our training course; please keep an eye on ENT UK communications and the website for the dates of this and other mentoring supporting events.
