Mentoring is recognised by the College as a process which can provide valuable support to paediatricians throughout their careers.
The Mentoring Champions Network promotes mentoring and supports paediatricians who are keen to promote mentoring within their organisation.
Role of a Champion
A Champion will already be (or will become) active in their own organisation in promoting mentoring and supporting paediatric mentors and mentees, or will intend to initiate the development of mentoring locally.
Typical activities for a RCPCH Mentoring Champion may include:
- championing and supporting the engagement of paediatricians locally with the concept of mentoring
- developing new mentors by delivering local mentor development/training days and promoting the use of mentoring among paediatricians
- engaging with other RCPCH Mentoring Champions to share good practice around mentoring
- working with local mentors and mentees to feedback ideas for further mentoring resources to RCPCH.
