The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine – Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering offers industry mentorship opportunities for all our students within the Centre.
Mentoring involves one person providing support and guidance to another, in order to help them manage their own learning and development. Mentoring is rapidly becoming recognised worldwide as a highly effective developmental process for students and employees in diverse organisations. To be most effective, mentoring needs to be a voluntary activity with the primary purpose of supporting the mentee’s learning and development. It is a relationship – rather than a management activity – that guarantees a safe and non-judgemental environment in which to learn.
