If you are undertaking a Professional Registration Qualification then you have to find a mentor. A dedicated mentor will help you take a fresh look at your skills and experiences, discover new ideas and perspectives, and provide support through the process.
CILIP recommend you choose a mentor in a different sort of organisation from yourself. This will make it easier to discuss service performance objectively and helps with acquiring wider professional knowledge. Though you may choose a CILIP mentor within your organisation, your line manager must not be your mentor as this would make it difficult to evaluate things objectively.
They have to be registered with CILIP so you may need to look for one outside your area - this important relationship does not have to be undertaken face to face it can take place via e-mail, phone, Skype or via whatever technology you are both comfortable with.
