Early Career Mentoring Initiative for Academics

The Early Career Mentoring Initiative is a support service aimed at new and recently appointed academics in their first 3 years of service. This is a great opportunity to benefit from the advice and support of a senior academic colleague. Details of the Initiative are set out below under Frequently Asked Questions. Early Career Mentoring.

Mentoring - The Momentum Programme for Academics

The attraction, retention and development of academic staff are very important for the Trinity’s continued success in teaching and research. As part of College’s support to developing our academic community (ref Action 3.4 of the Strategic Plan (2009‐2014), recently we launched a mentoring programme for early-career academic staff. We are now introducing an innovative programme for academic staff, more established in their careers - The Momentum Programme.
