Programme Structure

The programme will run for seven months from April 2017 with completion by the end of October 2017. 

At the commencement of the programme, both Mentees and Mentors will undergo a COMPULSORY comprehensive Training Session with facilitators from the New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre.

This Training Session provides Mentees and Mentors with the necessary skills and tools to ensure the development of successful mentoring relationships and is a great form of professional development.

Mentees and Mentors will both be trained on the same day in Auckland on 4th April 2017. Mentees will meet and be trained in the morning and a hosted lunch for both Mentors and Mentees will be scheduled for the middle of the day. The Mentors will be trained throughout the afternoon of the same day.

The programme will kick off in April which will allow Mentors and Mentees to form a relationship. This can be further developed at the MEETINGS Exhibition, the annual CINZ tradeshow event. 

Mentoring pairs will be responsible for arranging their own mentoring sessions. There are goal setting sheets, mentoring log books and suggested discussion topics to help guide you.

The CINZ Conference in Dunedin 25-26th October 2017 also allows the Mentors and Mentees arrange a session.

In July 2017 a Mentoring Mid-Point event will be held in Auckland and will offer all programme participants from around New Zealand to meet up with each other and provide an opportunity to further develop their mentoring skills.

CINZ will be available to provide guidance, resolve any issues and regularly evaluate the programme.
