Guidelines

FEAL Mentoring Initiative Guidelines

The aim of these guidelines is to provide a framework for the basis on which mentors and mentees participate in the FEAL Mentoring Initiative. Each mentor and mentee pair will communicate, interact and achieve their program goals differently – in the way that best suits each pair. The 12-14 month program is intended to facilitate, not restrict, the participation of mentors and mentees in the program.
