The CIPD Mentoring Programme is a member-to-member mentoring scheme where both parties involved are CIPD members representing the people profession.
What we do
- We work with experts in the field of coaching and mentoring to provide a range of support in the form of videos, workbooks and webinars.
- We provide a dedicated space for mentors and mentees to find one another, tap into the resources available, and share tips and advice.
- We leverage digital tools (like our online community, webinars and learning resources) to enable virtual relationships across the many countries in which our members operate.
Our programme is connected with the CIPD branch network allowing for:
- local, face-to-face connection
- members to be part of a regional initiative to help people professionals develop new skills and progress their careers.
