HEE NW now has a pool of trained mentors to support trainees returning from a period of absence for the 6 months following their return. This mentoring is designed to be a safe space to encourage planning for personal development and is not for educational supervision, dealing with concerns about placements, pay, LTFT arrangements, health issues and other concerns, although a mentor may help signpost to other support. Usual support from the lead employer, occupational health and the Trust where the trainee works should be used, and a diagram showing how the system works is below:
If you are a trainee who is due to return or have recently retuned to training and would like to have a mentor please complete the Mentee Registration Form.
