Thank you for undertaking the ALDinHE Mentoring Scheme. We are delighted to welcome you to the programme. On this website, you will find all the essential information regarding the mentoring support for ALDinHE members, as well as the CeM certification process and the steps that need to be taken to complete it. There is also a section on resources with links to valuable external supporting materials, as well as, the mentee’s journey, which the mentee will also see.
The ALDinHE Mentoring Scheme aims to provide learning developers with an opportunity to hone their mentoring skills while helping other colleagues to enhancing practice within learning development through being mentored. Our ambition is to support mutually beneficial professional relationships and bring compassion and generosity into our working environments.
Record mentee progress
As each stage of the mentoring journey is completed, you will revisit the relevant mentee’s journey progress via the “Mentor journeys” in the side menu to record progress.
1 – Click on Mentor Journeys from the side menu. You will see everyone you are mentoring.
2 – Click on the relevant mentee.
3 – Tick the box against the relevant stage that has been completed. This will automatically update the Mentee’s journey progress.
Six stages of the mentoring scheme
There are six key stages you will work through on your mentoring journey with your Mentee and in the presence of the Partner, in order to initiate and maintain the mentoring process (see image shown). The six stages are also shown on the right hand menu.
Certified Mentor (CeM)
Please note that ‘Step 7. Certification’ is only relevant to colleagues interested in applying for the Certified Mentor (CeM) recognition.
Participants in the scheme may choose to apply for recognition as ALDinHE Mentors (CeM) or continue to use the ALDinHE Mentoring Scheme to support colleagues without certification.
