One to One Mentoring Programme

Applications are now closed for the second round of GEM’s new mentoring programme, “One to One”  which has been set up to support mentees of any age/skill level who have a learning role in museums and heritage sites during a difficult time for the sector. One to One is open to applicants from all over the UK and we especially welcome applications from N Ireland, Wales and Scotland. The second round of mentoring will be open to GEM members only and is generously supported by Nimrod Capital.

We have an ace team of mentors  from across the UK, who are all museum professionals with a range of experiences and include heads of departments, consultants and lecturers.

What you’ll receive:
2 x bookable mentoring sessions (60-90 minutes each) between August – October.

How to apply:
Applications have now closed – we hope to announce another round of One to One Mentoring soon!

How mentees will be selected:
We aim to match as many mentees with mentors as possible. There is a particular emphasis for supporting career development and for those who’ve been furloughed at this time, however all members are encouraged to apply.

If you are unsuccessful in this round of applications, we will keep your details on a waiting list until the end of September in case a mentoring partnership becomes available.

Museum Development Network also provides a range of support services in your area including mentoring. To find information for your area, please visit their website
