As part of the new Framework of Qualifications, CILIP is developing a Mentor Scheme for those members who do not have access to an existing scheme, for example through their place of work. The Mentor Scheme will be available to members who wish to progress from Certification to Chartered Membership or to participate in the Revalidation Scheme. It will also form a compulsory element of the new Chartership process.
We are about to set up the scheme in Wales, so if you are interested in becoming a mentor now is the time to register online at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/qualificationschartership/FrameworkofQualifications/mentor/mentorguidelines.htm We will be running mentor training courses in North Wales, SE Wales and SW Wales in the autumn. The first will run on the 7 and 21 September, venue to be confirmed.
