FIA Victoria Mentoring Program – LAUNCHES OCTOBER
Kindly Supported by
Applications are NOW open for Mentees and Mentors in FIA Victoria's pilot Mentoring Program for 2014/15. The program, kindly sponsored and supported by ASI, will involve training for mentors and will include matching sessions so mentees can meet and talk with all their prospective mentors. Mentees and Mentors will then identify the best matches for their needs and experience. FIA Victoria will support the mentoring partnerships over a full year.
Applications as Mentee or Mentor close Monday 29 September. Training and matching will take place in October. For more information and application forms please contact FIA's Education Coordinator, Tanita - firstname.lastname@example.org.
