Mentorship Network

Mentorship Network


Listing Details

Mentorship is the relation between two or more people whereby the mentor, who typically has more experience and knowledge, provides guidance and nurtures the development of the mentee who may be less experienced in the field in question in order to help them grow and learn. The mentorship relation is based on mutual trust, goodwill and experience.

At Self Taught Academy, we have created a platform for an exclusive Peer to Peer mentorship on top of the classical Mentorship relationship, whereby all the individuals involved are knowledgeable in their respective field and they are willing to share information to enable their peers learn and be guided as per their interest, as they themselves also learn in the process from their fellow peers.

Here are the top reasons for the importance of mentorship and signing up as a mentor:

  1. Supporting Career growth: Being a mentor helps to encourage the professional and personal developments of a person. The knowledge shared can contribute to training and creating high quality skills
  2. Source of Knowledge: As mentors are highly knowledgeable in their fields, their is less gate keeping of information as one can easily approach them for clarification on specific topics
  3. Setting SMART goals: Mentors can help to hold each other accountable for their progress. They can help set up specific, achievable, relevant and time-based (SMART) goals which fellow mentees and mentors can use to track their progress in the efforts they put in to grow their career.
  4. Networking connections: Mentors also have their professional networks that they could potentially introduce you to in the long run as your professional developments grows.
