Mentoring is a partnership where a more experienced mentor shares their knowledge and expertise with a less experienced mentee. The mentee is encouraged, challenged and supported by the mentor to learn and grow.
From March 2019 we are running a ScreenSkills Mentoring Network. The ScreenSkills Mentoring Network will run across all sectors of the screen industry and across the UK. It is aimed at:
- New entrants
- Those who want to progress within or across the industry
- Those who want to return after a break
If you are interested in being part of the mentoring scheme as a mentor we want to hear from you! Once you are matched you will be offered guidance and support to ensure you are able to give of your best, and get the best from mentoring. We will also ask you to sign a mentoring agreement and we will share with you the code of conduct.
If you are Cardiff local, you can also learn more about our mentoring network by coming to our Mentoring Roadshow on 17 July.
How to apply
As a mentor, you can apply at any time. We are always looking for mentors from across the screen industry. To register your interest, all you need to do is click the 'Apply now' button and complete a short form. This helps us find the right match for you, so the more information you can give us, the better.
There will be phased targeted roll outs focusing on, for example, an under-represented group, a skills gap, stage of career etc as identified by BFI and ScreenSkills research. Matching will be done on what you tell us when you register, and what the mentee is looking for. There may be a delay before we are able to make a suitable match. This project runs to March 2022.
