Being a CUBO mentor is a unique development opportunity:
The CUBO mentoring process:
CUBO Mentoring Process
It's the responsibility of the mentee to drive the mentoring relationship: organising meetings with you, preparing for the sessions and doing any follow-ups you assign to them. However, it's your responsibility as mentor to bring ideas and resources to support the mentee. Average time spent by mentors is roughly 2 hours per meeting, though only 1 hour is spent with your mentee. Mentoring pairs are asked to commit to meet at least 1 hour every 6-8 weeks for 9 – 12 months.
Please complete the application form, which asks you for information about the areas you can support in, under three headings: Expertise, Experience and Excellence. You’ll also be asked to provide your LinkedIn profile and upload a photo.
We ask you to commit to one mentee. If you feel you have time to mentor more than one, please let us know.
The matching will be organised by CUBO based on the mentee’s needs and your profile. We may propose one or more mentees for you to choose from. You'll have an initial “chemistry session”, when you and your mentee decide if the matching is right. You then agree mutually how the mentoring will work in terms of confidentiality, conduct and calendar.
The Strive Higher consultancy has worked with CUBO to produce a training video for mentors. If you have additional questions, please contact our Executive Director Jan Capper.
You should agree a timetable with the mentee for the mentoring sessions, and give the mentee an outline of what they should expect from the mentoring prior to it taking place. You should support and challenge with constructive feedback and reflections on what you have observed. You must maintain confidentiality at all times, show good time keeping and inform your mentee if you are unavailable for any reason.
You should schedule the last session as a review session, and then let CUBO know that the mentoring relationship has ended. CUBO will ask you for feedback, if you're open to giving a testimonial and if you'd like another match. Then update your mentor and LinkedIn profile with the additional expertise, experience or excellence gained from the mentoring relationship.
If you have any more questions, please email the CUBO Executive Director.
