The ALIA Mentoring Scheme is seeking mentees and mentors!

by | Jun 7, 2017 | ALIA National, featured, Mentoring

At the recent Library Leadership day, one of the calls for action was around starting a mentoring scheme. Now I won’t try and take credit for the timing on this, but rather fortuitously, ALIA is now taking applications for its new mentoring scheme. 

The 12 month program has been designed for sustainability, to provide support to the mentors and mentees and to complement existing ALIA activities. 

Who should apply as a Mentee?
Experienced or inexperienced LIS Professionals. Mentees may be new to the profession or wanting to move into a different LIS sector or a more senior role. Is this the right time in your career to seek a mentor? Can you take constructive criticism? Do you have the ability and desire to learn new things about your practice and yourself? If you feel you have room for improvement or want to progress your career but are not sure if this formal mentoring scheme is for you please contact **@al**.au

Who should apply as a Mentor?
A mentor is an ALIA Associate or Library Technician Member who is an experienced LIS professional with at least four years of LIS industry experience and who feels they could assist in the growth of a mentee.

Applications close Friday 23 June.  Check out the full scheme details for more information on program format and application details. 

Questions about the scheme are very welcome to either myself or **@al**.au
