The CIIs E-mentoring platform, Connect, supports skills and professional development across our membership and has seen great success in its first year, with many more members continuing to sign up.

Connect is the mentoring programme that works around your life, giving you the flexibility to decide the best way to establish and progress your mentoring relationship, whether that’s meeting in person, having video calls or simply exchanging emails. You choose how you want to interact with one another and what the learning objectives will be.

The platform features a functionality that allows users to set up profiles and search for one another, making the process of finding the right mentor/mentee pairing much easier. Our “matching” system first aligns members in accordance with specific criteria, such as skills, experience and sector. In so doing, Connect will make the most effective use of the broad range of skills and expertise within the profession, regardless of geographic location.

More recently we have launched a new blog offering members support on mentoring. Whatever your aim, Connect is designed to help you on your journey.
