About the method
Mentorship entails the exchange of knowledge and experiences between a mentor (a more experienced person) and a mentee (someone less experienced). By using this approach, the mentor supports the mentee in his/her personal and professional journey, developing the mentee's skills, talents and abilities. Therefore, the main aim of mentorship is to create a space for thinking, self-reflection, personal and professional development. Mentoring process is organised into sessions that follow the mentee's goals and needs. The mentorship as a method is personal, contextual and situated. Unlike more abstract knowledge sharing methods it is very practice and experience based, and fosters trust and affective relationship between those involved in the process.
