Developing through mentoring or being mentored: ALDinHE’s new mentoring scheme and certified mentor recognition
Keywords:mentoring, peer-support, values-based LD, professional recognition, professional development
ALDinHE is launching its new mentoring scheme and mentorship recognition to acknowledge, promote and recognise the importance of mentoring for LD as a field that does not offer an official route into the profession. This Professional Development session introduced the mentoring scheme, explaining how to get involved, what support mentors and mentees can receive from ALDinHE and what benefits both sides can get from mentoring or being mentored. If you’re new to LD or keen to develop more experience in a specific area with the help of a mentor, the mentoring scheme will offer you a brilliant framework to broaden your expertise. If you’re an experienced Learning Developer or have specific expertise you could share, find out how you could become recognised as a Certified Mentor (CeM) in LD by ALDinHE.
