University Mentoring Scheme

A baton being passed from hand to hand

The University of the Highlands and Islands Mentoring Scheme offers a range of mentoring opportunities for all university colleagues, and is designed to support personal development and skills enhancement of the individual in ways that are contextualised to their own needs, interests and aspirations. The scheme is open to new, early career and more experienced colleagues who are seeking mentoring support, and to colleagues who wish to become mentors. The scheme is organised around three distinct mentoring strands, comprising :

  • Research;
  • Learning and teaching enhancement;
  • ALPINE (Accredited Learning, Professional development and Innovation in Education).
