My mentor’s advice and support has got me to actually take the actions I’ve been avoiding to move forward in my career – and it turned out it wasn’t difficult to do after all! Some of the tips she has given me will stay with me for life.Kate Clay
Women 1st mentee
Did you know that 61 percent of women see a lack of mentoring as a barrier to career development?
We can introduce and implement a mentoring programme for women in your business, giving them the opportunity to get first-hand advice from someone who has already achieved their goals.
Mentoring offers something different from traditional training sessions – 100 percent personal attention. Your staff can ask the questions that matter to them, and get great advice from someone who is experienced, objective and invested in their development.
How it works
On the Women 1st Mentoring Programme, both mentors and mentees complete a profiling questionnaire to match them with their ideal mentee/mentor. They also receive a day’s training to prepare them to get the most out of their partnership.
Once they’ve been matched, mentees are in the driving seat and will work with their mentor to arrange one-to-one sessions and put actions in place.
We can even train someone within your business to deliver the mentor/mentee training and matching themselves, so you can run more programmes without incurring additional training costs.

There are two options to choose from:
- Setting up an in-company mentoring network – training mentors and mentees in your business
- 'Train the mentor' programme – train your own people to deliver the mentoring programme in-house

“My mentor has been so encouraging and inspiring - Women 1st really found a good match for me! It has been quite a journey of self-discovery and I’m so pleased that it is one that I have been on. I now see many things in an entirely new way and understand why I react the way I do in certain situations. My whole experience with Women 1st has been so positive and I’m very grateful.” Sarah Thornton
