Join the iHV Leadership Mentor Panel

24th February 2023

We need you! Are you:

  • An iHV member?
  • An experienced SCPHN (minimum of 3 years)?
  • Passionate about leadership within SCPHN practice with experience in a specialist or clinical leadership role?
  • Willing to support one mentee at a given time for a minimum of 4 sessions?
  • Suitably supported by your employer to participate and provide mentorship for future leaders?

We are thrilled to see the exponential growth in interest for our iHV Leading Excellence in Practice leadership programme. We are delighted to see the next generation of aspiring SCPHNs stepping forward to become leaders for the profession and are loving the energy they are bringing with them.

Part of our Leading Excellence in Practice programme is the provision of mentorship to support the candidate on their leadership journey through the programme. We believe so many of you have so much to offer the profession in terms of gentle guidance based upon your own journey and your experience. Our mentors regularly share how much they gain from mentorship, and we also know that the candidates really value the mentorship they receive through the programme, in terms of the additional perspective it offers them.

The role of leadership mentors for this programme is:

  • As a ‘critical friend’ a mentor is able to offer guidance, support and form a positive one-to-one relationship with their mentees.
  • To provide encouragement and guidance using a range of approaches to support the mentees in their development as future leaders.
  • To create a supportive, challenging and reflective learning environment during the one-to-one sessions to help them focus on their strengths and areas for development.
  • To guide (but not direct) the mentee to support their personal development in line with the learning outcomes of the iHV leading excellence in practice programme.

The commitment to the mentee in terms of time is:

  • Attendance at a virtual Mentor Briefing:  25 April 2023 – 15:00-16:30 – via Zoom (details to follow) SAVE THE DATE!!
  • Provide 4 x virtually delivered mentorship meetings of one hour for one candidate in either of the following cohorts:
    • May 2023 (with mentor meetings in June, Sept, Nov & Dec)
    • July 2023 (with mentor meetings in Sept, Nov, Jan, March).
