Mentoring

 

APA Mentoring

In 2022 we are proud to introduce two new APA mentoring membership offerings, in addition to the existing eLearning mentoring products. Designed to take your personal and professional development to new levels, mentoring has many advantages for both mentors and mentees.

Our programs

With three different mentoring opportunities, our programs cater for APA Graduate members, right through to practice principals.

New to your mentoring options are the APA Graduate Mentoring Program, and APA Mentoring Connections, which are both offered at no additional costs to members – another great benefit of membership! Alternatively, our original cpd4physios Mentoring Series via eLearning gives you the ability to complete self-paced modules online.

Mentors:

We all have more time, skills and insight than we think, and, with the right training, anyone can learn to be a good mentor. Being a mentor can be a fantastic learning opportunity for both mentor and mentee, feel good, and make a difference in key areas, inclusive of being able to:

  • Shape the leaders of tomorrow
  • Exercise your emotional intelligence
  • Contribute back to the profession and make a difference to someone else
  • Enrich your leadership and interpersonal skills
  • Gain intellectual challenge, and a new perspective
  • Expand your professional network
  • Help to fulfil your CPD requirements. 

Mentees:

By becoming a mentee, you can receive guidance for your personal and professional development in the physiotherapy profession from someone with a wealth of experience. Key benefits of being a mentee may include:

  • Increased self-confidence and awareness
  • An increased chance of promotion and job satisfaction
  • An opportunity to explore issues and concerns in a confidential and supportive relationship
  • Learning from other physiotherapy experiences in a supportive environment
  • Development of communication and leadership skills
  • Improved goal setting.
