Proforma Mentoring Agreement
Both mentor and mentee will be required to download the Mentoring Agreement, a copy of which is set out below, sign and submit the Agreement via email as evidence of their agreement to the terms of the program. This should only be done once the IRSNSW has notified both parties they have been successfully matched.
This agreement between ________________________ (mentee) and ________________________ (mentor) provides the personal commitment of each party towards the success of the mentoring relationship.
By agreeing to the mentoring relationship, both the mentee and the mentor understand the objectives of the program and agree to participate in the program in a conscientious and professional fashion.
It is agreed that the mentor will, as appropriate:
Throughout the mentoring relationship, the mentor will:
Throughout the mentoring relationship, the mentee will:
Any specific information discussed or issues raised during the mentoring relationship will be on a strictly confidential basis.
Either party may maintain file notes on the progress of mentoring sessions and will ensure complete confidentiality of this information except in rare circumstances where it is decreed by law or as agreed between the parties for a specified purpose.
Early termination of the mentoring relationship
Whilst it is expected that the mentor and mentee commit to the 4-month period for the mentoring program, it is understood that either party may not wish to remain in the program for the duration. If this occurs, the person wishing to end the relationship will need to notify the other and the IRSNSW.
We have discussed:
We agree to meet regularly over the duration of the 4-month period of the mentoring program, unless agreed otherwise. At the end of this period, we will complete the program evaluation to review progress and determine learning outcomes.
If we choose to continue the mentoring relationship beyond the 4-month program period, we will agree the basis for continuation and mutually determine new goals and terms. Any continuation of the mentoring relationship will be driven solely by us and without the formal framework of the IRSNSW mentoring program.
If either party believes the mentoring relationship is no longer productive or the learning situation is compromised, notification will be given to the IRSNSW, and the mentoring relationship will be concluded without fault on either the mentor or mentee’s part.
