ASiT Mentoring Scheme
In 2012 we invited our members to take part in a national survey on surgical mentoring. Our preliminary results confimed that significant numbers of surgical trainees do not have a mentor and that training in coaching and mentoring is lacking but desired. The survey results are available to read below
Many thanks to all of you that responded!
We are piloting a National Mentoring Scheme over the coming year. We initially advertised this to members who had filled in the mentoring survery and clearly had an interest in mentoring. There are still a few spaces on the pilot and we are looking for:
1. Mentors who have already had training in mentoring and coaching. We will have three monthly feedback/ training sessions for mentors.
2. Trainees who would like a surgical mentor. Mentees can be of any grade, specialty or region within the UK.
If you fall into either of these catergories, please fill in the appropriate form below, and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please read the outline of the scheme and ground rules & code of conduct attached below
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: FRIDAY 22ND MARCH MIDNIGHT
We are also developing a training scheme, which will be piloted over the coming year and launched in 2014, so if you would like to be a mentor and have not had training- there will be something available for you soon!

If you are interested in developing your mentoring and coaching skills then our pre-conference course 'ASiT Mentoring and Coaching Skills Course' is a must.....and a bargain at only £55!
The course is taught by Mr. Matt Driver - a senior management consultant, facilitator and coach. He was previously head of leadership development at the BBC, but is currently involved in development work with one of the new NHS Workforce Development Confederations (he works with the London Deanery Mentoring Scheme).
Surgical Trainees are invited to attend a coaching/mentoring skills course where emphasis is laid on optimising professional and career performance. Recent changes within the NHS have created the need for a ‘multi-skilled first-class’ health professional, and this course aims to address this.
For details of how to register for this pre-conference course and for further details see webpage below.
Hurry only few spaces left!
