UCL Cancer Institute



New: Joint Mentoring scheme 

The Institute is part of a combined mentoring scheme with three other UCL Institutes: The Institute of Child Health, Institute of Global Health, and the Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology.

Staff at all levels, and students, across the participating Institutes are invited to apply. This training is aimed at both mentors and mentees - to explore what mentoring is, what it involves and how it works so you can make a start to set up your mentoring relationship.

A mentor can help you gain impartial advice and encouragement in a supportive relationship where you can bounce ideas around. This can help you develop your career, develop professional networks, set a work/life balance, or transition to a new role. As a mentor you can further your own personal development, widen your understanding of UCL and how it works, and enhance your job satisfaction through supporting the development of others.

  • The next session will be on the Thursday 14 November hosted by the UCL Cancer Institute, 10am-12pm, at UCL Cancer Trials Centre, 90 Tottenham Court Road, 5th / 6th floors, London, W1T 4TJ. Register via Eventbrite
  • There will also be a session held on Tuesday 3 December hosted by ICTM, 2.30pm-4.30pm, 90 High Holborn, 2nd Floor, London, WC1V 6LJ. Register via Eventbrite

This programme allows mentees to select from a list of mentors (from across all four institutes) based on the experience or expertise they can offer. An agreement is then made between mentor and mentee for the frequency and content of meetings and the period of time the meetings should continue. After this, the mentee and mentor feedback their experiences to the mentoring steering group and can then either continue in the mentoring programme (with the same or different mentor-mentee pairing) or leave the programme.
