Future Fifty Mentors
a new mentoring scheme launched by the Academic Careers Office in 2012. It
provides mentoring from fifty experienced mentors drawn from across the School
of Life and Medical Sciences to an initial cohort of fifty individuals
recruited in 2012.
- The Deans of each of the four Faculties were asked to select particular promising mentees and experienced mentors.
- Each mentee is an early career research who has not yet achieved a senior position but is regarded as one of the potential future academic and clinical academic leaders at UCL.
- Mentors and mentees are matched across the four Faculties, and each receives a short professional training session before being allowed to meet.
- The mentor-mentee relationship is a private, professional relationship and so the Academic Careers Office does not monitor the scheme as it progresses; but we will evaluate and support the scheme as required.
- Participating in the scheme is by invitation only, but does not preclude taking part in other mentoring schemes at UCL, both formal and informal.
