      Why with CILIP?
      The Mentor Scheme has one key purpose:
      “to support individual CILIP members through the Framework of Qualifications processes. The key outcome of all mentoring partnerships within the scheme will be the successful completion of a CILIP qualification”
      The overall purpose of all CILIP qualifications is to develop ‘reflective practitioners’.

      CILIP and mentoring
      For the purposes of the CILIP scheme
      mentoring is defined as:
      ‘supporting the professional development of others in the library and information sector in order to maximise their potential, develop their skills and develop the profession to meet the needs of service users now and in the future.’
      taken from theYMLAC Mentoring Toolkit

      Mentoring defined
      ‘To help and support people to manage their own learning in order to maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.’ Parsloe 1992
      ‘Mentoring includes coaching, counselling and networking. It is not necessary to dazzle the protégé with knowledge and experience. The mentor just has to provide encouragement by sharing his enthusiasm for his job.’
      Clutterbuck 1991
      “Learning by association with a relevant role model”Biddy Fisher

      Share your thoughts
      Review & reflect on learning
      Be open to new perspectives
      Take responsibility for your own development

      Be prepared to be stretched

      Role of Mentee
      Be open to challenges
      Don’t expect the Mentor to do it for you
      Read the regulations – again and again and again!
      Think about what you really want from the Mentor :
      Accountability?
      Advice?
      Ideas?
      Support in finding ideas for development activity?
      Remember the Mentor is not being paid to do this

      What makes a good Mentor?
      A good mentor:
      asks insightful questions
      listens carefully
      is empathetic
      is generous of spirit and time
      helps engender your self-awareness

      What will you get from Mentoring?
      Focused career development
      Improved self-confidence
      Advice and guidance on your submission
      Access to networks and contacts
      Skills development

      Finding a mentor?
      Look on CILIP website (or if not for Chartership look within your networks)
      Do be open to someone from another sector – they can give enormous benefit of different experiences
      E-mail one mentor at a time (with CILIP Mentee information form)
      Discuss needs/requirements
      If necessary/desirable exchange CVs
      Agree first meeting if both happy to accept
      If not acceptable start again
