Professional Mentoring Scheme


At the Faculty Member Conference on 25th November, the Faculty announced the launch of our informal professional mentoring scheme. This scheme provides a framework for Faculty members looking for mentorship and advice to be matched and put in contact with another Faculty member with the relevant experience and expertise.

The Faculty has a list of mentors who have been volunteered and been appointed by the Faculty’s Education and Standards Standing Committee. Becoming a mentor or mentee is open to all Faculty members from any health and social care discipline and any level of membership.

We are in particular need of more mentors from nursing, pharmacy, social care and the allied health professions, so please do get in contact if you are interested!

To sign up as a mentor, please email info@fci.org.uk with the following information:

  • Your professional qualification
  • Your current role
  • Any relevant experience and qualifications
  • Your mentoring style: small group sessions/discussions
  • Your availability
  • Your preferred contact details

This information will then be passed on to the Chair and Vice Chair of the Education and Standard Committee. Please be assured that this information will be kept safe and secure.

If you are seeking mentorship, please email info@fci.org.uk letting us know your request, the area of interest that you seek mentorship for, and your current role/position. Your details will only be accessed by FCI staff to match you to a possible mentor.

We will then seek to match you with a mentor most suited to your request, and once we have found a mentor, we will put you in contact. We would then recommend that you agree with your mentor, independently of the FCI, a framework for the format and duration of the support.
