The UK Public Health Network runs a mentoring scheme for our member and observer organisations. The scheme is open to all staff, at all levels, working in our member and observer organisations. We usually run one cohort per year and each cohort runs for six months.

The purpose of the scheme is to facilitate personal career development, connect the public health community across the UK and build a wider culture of knowledge sharing across public health organisations.

Testimonials from previous participants:

“Mentoring is a joint undertaking. As a mentor I got a lot from the whole process and highly recommend taking part.” 

“The UKPHN mentoring programme was an excellent way of exploring opportunities and ideas for my professional development. My mentor was extremely experienced and knowledgeable but above all, approachable and supportive. It was a true pleasure and honour to have had her as my mentor. I strongly recommend taking part on this scheme.”

“The process was very swift, the mentor had been very supportive and the experience opened many new windows in my mind to see how my qualifications and experience corroborates with required competencies through reflective writing techniques. Many thanks.”
