Registering as a Mentor
The AIG Mentoring Program is an initiative of the National Graduate Committee to provide early, mid career and more mature geoscientists, MSc/PhD Candidates and undergraduate students with practical advice and feedback on career and personal development from senior industry professionals.
The AIG Mentoring Program will run from April to November 2020, allowing time for the development of strong relationships between mentees and mentors. Mentor-mentee contact will be through three formal group meetings/social events as part of the program, plus private meetings arranged between pairs.
Joining the program involves a commitment to attend the formal meetings (where possible) and to meet regularly with your pairing between the formal meetings (at least once a month but fortnightly meetings are recommended). Please read the AIG Mentoring Handbook for 2020 for further information if you are unsure of your ability to commit to the program.
PLEASE NOTE: It is necessary to hold membership with Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG), and possess at least 5 years of professional experience to participate as a mentor in the AIG Mentoring Program. For an application form to join AIG go to https://www.aig.org.au/about-aig/membership/membership-application-approval-process
Registration for the 2020 AIG Mentoring Programs is FREE OF CHARGE for mentors.
Both Mentors and Mentees can claim CPD points for their participation in the programs. Further information on CPD points can be found at https://www.aig.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Guidelines-for-Registration-of-Geoscientists-as-RPGeo_-2017_06.pdf
Please complete the following details form if you wish to register as a MENTOR in the mentoring program. The AIG will make every attempt to match you with an appropriate mentee, but there are no guarantees a mentee will be available for every mentor or that a close match with your area of interest can be achieved. If you are paired with a mentee, this form will be sent to your mentee to familiarise them with your background and areas of expertise and interests.
Applications close 31st March, 2020
