APMP UK Sees Success with New Mentoring Program

At the start of this year, APMP UK launched its “Rapport Mentoring Programme” to give greater support to its members in developing their professional aspirations, no matter where they are in their career. Many members volunteered to be mentors, and in February, the first cohort of 10 mentors was selected and trained by Jackie Jenks, a mentoring and training specialist.

There was an overwhelming response once the application for mentees was opened, and from this long list of applicants, each mentor was matched with one mentee.

“The whole program has been very useful,” one mentor said. “What has really come across to me, which I wasn’t expecting, is that it’s helping the mentors as much as the mentees.”

APMP UK’s first cohort of mentors will continue with their initial mentees and take on more when appropriate. A second cohort will be trained later this year, and APMP UK will be refreshing its list of existing volunteers to take on the role, enabling them to help more members looking to develop their career.
