About us:

TUoS Mentoring Network is for anyone who works on any aspect of mentoring. Get in touch with the network Chair Dr Kay Guccione, Mentoring Consultant, to join the network — all mentoring professionals, amateurs and enthusiasts are welcome.

We meet as a group three times as year, to discuss the big issues in mentoring, from best practice in mentor training, to ensuring diversity in our programmes, to enabling ethical practice for our mentors.

Throughout the year we support each other to enhance our programmes and problem solve, to share our achievements, news and articles, and help grow a culture of mentoring and development for our staff and students.

We use the Twitter hashtag #ShefMentorNet to share news and resources. We hold Organisation level Membership to the European Mentoring & Coaching Council
