Once all applications have been reviewed, we will have a set number of mentoring partnerships available and will select individuals based on the strength of their application (in the case where we have more prospective mentees than mentors).
Participants will be contacted in late August with the outcome of their application and details of their mentoring partnership. Partnerships will be formed based on the criteria with which mentees and mentors have indicated on their application forms. Where participants have specifically requested an LGBTQ+ mentor then we will try to facilitate this as much as possible.
The mentoring partnerships will last for 6 months with a range of supporting materials. Although not fixed, we recommend mentoring partnerships meet once a month during this period but this will be discussed in early conversations and supporting materials. At the end of this period the mentoring relationship will cease, although in some cases individuals may decide to continue if this is mutually agreed.
