Setting up a mentoring scheme - Step 7 - monitor and evaluate: page 1 of 1
Guide: Despite the best efforts of the selection process it's possible that relationships won't develop or will become acrimonious. If this happens mentees should be able to change mentors without blame.
However, you will need to be careful that mentees don't move to a series of mentors to avoid difficult problems or decisions. If this happens you may require an arbiter.
Guide: The key question here is, how will you evaluate the effectiveness of your scheme while it is in progress and who will you ask?
A focus on all participants will be useful and you may want to establish census points during the process. Alternatively an overall arbiter could take feedback from mentees and mentors alike to monitor progress.
Guide: You could use a variety of methods, from focus groups to questionnaires or anonymous suggestions for improvement.
