More mentors needed to support the next generation of environmental scientists

‘Mentoring’ covers a broad spectrum of activities, including moral support, advice and guidance, skills development, coaching, and buddy-like systems. Our IES Mentoring Scheme is designed to allow mentors and mentees to determine the nature of their mentoring and build a strong, supportive relationship.

We are looking for more of our professional members to sign up as mentors to support the next generation of environmental scientists. Our mentoring platform is incredibly popular with our student members and we now need to recruit more mentors to satisfy the demand. 

Why become a mentor?

If you are ready to benefit from being a mentor, check out our IES Mentoring Handbook for more information about the range of mentoring opportunities available and how our new bespoke mentoring platform works. Through the platform you can also access a range of training resources and guidance to support you in becoming a mentor.

It has never been easier to sign up as an IES mentor, so what are you waiting for? Sign up here.
