Mentoring is a trusting relationship that brings people together. Often, but not always, this involves a more senior colleague (the Mentor) who offers guidance, support and encouragement aimed at developing the skills of a more junior colleague (the Mentee).

Mentoring is a partnership where both parties agree to the relationship and are responsible for its success.
