Mentoring at the University of Reading

Mentoring for staff

Mentoring is a great way of helping new starters settle into their role and gain confidence by understanding the context around them. Many who take part in mentoring fund the process and relationship mutually beneficial, as both mentor and mentee often learn something new from each other.   

Mentoring is available for:

  • Newly appointed managers
  • New starters in Grade 6 roles with a University-wide remit
  • Roles above Grade 7
  • New research staff 
  • New academic staff

Local schemes within individual schools and functions may also be available for a broader range of roles. Line managers are responsible for organising a mentor, and assistance is available from our People Development team. 

It is recommended mentors for new starters in September are arranged before the start of the autumn term (Monday 1 October).

For anyone interested in becoming a mentor, People Development run a Successful Mentoring workshop, which covers the attributes and skills required to become an effective mentor. Places can be booked through the Employee Self Service portal.
