ITP Mentoring Programme

"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction."
-- John Crosby

The ITP Mentoring Programme is the best way for IT Professionals to get ahead in their professional career.

Whether as a Mentee, gaining the experience and guidance of a professional who has been there before, or as a Mentor, receiving Mentoring guidance and contributing to the development of others, participating in the programme is hugely rewarding.

What is Mentoring?

A Mentor is a professional who undertakes an active interest in the career development of what is often (but not always) a younger or perhaps less experienced individual in the same profession.

It's important to differentiate Mentoring from Coaching - Mentors do not attempt to advise Mentees directly, but should assist their Mentees to come to their own conclusions as to how best to achieve their goals.

Mentoring works, and many successful individuals have attributed much of their success to being mentored, and mentoring really is an integral component of professional development and growth.

The ITP Mentoring Programme

The ITP Mentoring Programme matches Mentors and Mentees, provides guidance and support for Mentors, and helps manage the mentoring relationship over time.

The programme is built around "professional development" or career-focused mentoring - helping Mentees set clear career goals and objectives, understand that they have the ability to achieve these, and putting in place a plan to do so.

Having a ready supply of quality Mentors keen to contribute to the professional development of others is absolutely pivotal to the success of the programme, and the calibre of those who provide mentoring under the programme is high.
