Mentoring

The CoreNet UK Chapter have launched a NEW, free mentoring programme to benefit our membership.

Based on role model mentoring, the scheme will provide confidential, one on one, non-judgmental support by a team of mentors, at every age and career level. They will volunteer their time to provide advice and guidance to mentees, also at any level, to help them achieve their career objectives.
