A guide to mentoring
The Australia Council for the Arts - Guide to Mentoring is designed as a resource for artists or arts workers who are interested in being a mentor or a mentee; it is also for organisations who wish to reflect on their mentoring programs, or establish a new program.
The Guide to Mentoring presents a structure that will enhance a mentoring relationship and personal growth. Importantly, this structure also remains flexible to recognise the uniqueness of each mentoring pair. It clarifies language that can be used by mentors and mentees to discuss their expectations and ambitions, and to aid in keeping the focus on mentoring. It also provides helpful communication and tracking tools to keep the mentorship fully engaged.
