How to register
To participate in the ESOT Mentorship Programme, both prospective mentors and prospective mentees are invited to submit an application. The Education Committee will review applications and select a maximum of 5 mentees for the first edition of the programme, which will run in 2023.
Prospective mentors should submit the following documents by 31 October to Laura Contessi (firstname.lastname@example.org):
- A complete CV
- A letter outlining their expertise, their background, their motivation to participate in the programme, the ideas and approach they expect to implement in the mentorship programme, their educational goals with the mentees
Prospective mentees should submit the following documents by 31 October to Laura Contessi (email@example.com):
- A complete CV
- A letter detailing the applicant’s interest in and commitment to the full programme, specifying the mentee’s needs, the type of mentor they are looking for, and what they are hoping to gain from the mentorship programme
Applications will be reviewed by the ESOT Education Committee. Selected applicants will be presented with several potential mentors and will be able to choose their mentor based on their specialisation and preference.
A mentor or mentee can inform the Committee if, after their first meeting, either feels that the interaction is unlikely to work, and they will be assigned an alternative.
We ask applicants to agree at the outset that they will complete feedback during and at the end of the year so that ESOT can gauge the programme’s success and make any necessary adjustments. This will be required to maintain the programme benefits and to receive their final certificate.
