The mentor role

Mentors have an important role as GATEKEEPERS with a duty to develop our future workforce who are fit for practice and purpose.

The role of a mentor is to provide learners with a quality learning environment and ensure that patient safety and quality standards are met. The delivery of safe and effective quality patient care is enhanced by providing quality learning environments.

Please spend a moment to think about the following:

  • Ask yourself “How will you develop the workforce who may look after you and your family?”
  • Think of your own role models, could you be one too?
  • This is a very important role, are you ready to take the first step on your mentoring journey?
