I'm currently studying for an MEd at Sheffield University and for the dissertation stage of the course I'm looking into the subject of mentoring. I work for BAE Systems (Aviation Services) Ltd and for my thesis I'm exploring the pros and cons of extending the mentoring scheme to all employees in the organisation. The mentoring programme is currently only offered to senior managers but after questionning these mentorees about the benefits they have gained from the process, they recommend that mny more employees would benefit from the initiative.

I'm looking for an organisation of some sort that offers mentoring to all/the majority of employees. I'd really like to use this kind of organisation as a case study comparison. I'm interested to learn of the pros/cons from both the company's point of view and that of the employee.

Can you help?

If so, please e-mail and discuss!

Many thanks

    Hi Kay,
    I work at BAE SYSTEMS at Rochester where we have tried mentoring against a number of GEC intiatives including the Dunchurch courses such as Managing for Success; and for new Graduate employees.
    As an adjunct ot personal professional development, the IEE advocate mentoring as a support function and our local Younger members chairman (employed at Rochester) is counselling support from the Kent Centre seinor committee in support of their development.

    There are apparently, some legal (insurance issues) related to mentoring which we are currently investigating.

    If you think I can help in any way, please contact mew on my works e-mail (you can go via the BAE SYSTEM intra-net) and I’ll see how I can help.



  2. Help is at hand!

    Mentoring is once again riding a wave of popularity.

    Look in the toolkit section of this site for my mentoring diagnostic – in the training methods section. This was produced from over 500 repertory grid generated ‘competent mentor’ statements. I will be happy to email this to you plus whatever else that would help.

    Good luck.
