Following a successful pilot in 2018, the Department has officially launched its own Mentoring Scheme.


The aim of the scheme is to support staff in identifying problems and solutions, defining goals and deciding on next steps. Issues may include: direction; influence; dealing with change; confidence; working relationships; transitions; work-life balance.

Mentoring is:

  • Non-judgemental 
  • Supportive and constructive
  • Built on truth, openness and trust


If you are interested in joining the scheme, as a mentor or as a mentee, please contact Olivia Nash,
