Contents:

Between 6 and 8 professionals at a similar career stage, form a peer mentoring group with the aid of a facilitator to meet on an ongoing basis, usually once a month, to provide regular, professional development and support for each other.
The group uses a range of structured processes that tap the resources within the group to enhance their ability to learn from experience. The processes are highly effective and easy to use – the result is an extremely rich learning environment and increased professional effectiveness.

The group will be supported for the first three meetings only. The aim of the facilitator is to help the group work to independence and self-sustainability. After these initial meetings the group is expected to become self-supporting, practicing the mentoring tools learnt during the facilitated sessions. Participants should commit to a process of sustained work over several months in the group, first with a facilitator and later as participators in a self-sustaining group.
