DIT Mentoring Programme

Mentoring is an informal learning process in which the mentor, a more skilled or experienced person, acts as a role model to the mentee. The DIT Mentoring Programme supports the Institute’s strategic goal – Great people in an innovative workplace, and the Institute’s People Strategy through the personal and professional development of staff. The DIT mentoring programme also supports the implementation of recommendations made by the HEA Review of Gender Equality in Higher Education (June 2016) and the DIT Athena SWAN Committee which specifically identifies mentoring as an important initiative to support the development and progression of women in higher education.

Through reflection on the part of the mentee and guidance and support from the mentor, there is a mutually beneficial learning exchange based on knowledge gained through experience.

If you wish to participate in the DIT Mentoring programme as a mentor or mentee, please contact Staff Development at
