One of the things that we have chatted about over at DPG HQ is what a fantastic thing it is to have and be a mentor.
We recommend that all our students find a mentor and have some support throughout their programmes. This isn't just to provide help and advice about the qualification but it also provides an opportunity to discuss all things HR / L&D with someone who is more experienced and someone who can share ideas and thoughts on a range of topics. It's hard to find a great mentor but we believe we have so much potential in this community.
Having a mentor is a great support and so helpful but being a mentor is a deeply rewarding and worthwhile experience and it is also something great to have on your CV.

Is mentoring something that you've done and would like to do again?
Are you looking for an opportunity to become a mentor?
Are you looking for a mentor?
The DPG team are keen to help and encourage those who want to get more from either having a mentor or becoming a mentor. We can use the DPG Community as a support network and if anyone is interested in getting involved as a mentor we're love to hear from you.
We see this being a something that will develop over time and be of real value to those who get involved. First things first though is anyone interested in this now or in the future?
Look foward to hearing from you.
