What is the mentor’s role?
The mentor in most cases will be a more experienced person who can challenge the person being mentored, pass on knowledge and experience, and assist to expand their networks. They may also be a peer. The mentor is also likely to benefit in terms of skills enhancement, increased organisational knowledge, positive recognition and renewed enthusiasm.
