The ABC Mentoring Program is back for 2022!

This is a six-month program that pairs a suitable Mentor and a Mentee in a mutually rewarding learning and development experience. This year we are also running a CALD Mentoring Program and a Gendered Mentoring Program.

What is it all about?

The structured program is designed to:

  • help mentees develop their skills and  benefit from an experienced mentor’s knowledge, guidance and insights
  • provide mentors the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to a fellow staff member’s career and share their skills and experience 
  • capitalise on the existing skills and knowledge in the ABC and ABC Alumni to help our future leaders.

Why we do it

  • Develops a culture of personal & professional  growth
  • Demonstrates the ABC principles
  • Enhances leadership skills
  • Engages and helps motivate staff 
  • Increases cultural awareness & encourages diversity
  • Creates a culture of giving back

What time commitment is involved?

Over the six-month program, it is advisable for Mentees & Mentors to meet at least once a month,   however this could  be increased if mutually decided upon.

Support available during the program

  • A dedicated Program Co-ordinator will be available to support with any questions and provide resources
  • Mentor Program Guide: a practical guide full of  handy tips to make it a successful partnership
  • Mentor Training Video and handy tools for successful Mentoring
