Best practice – Keeping in touch

When mentoring, it is important to develop a relationship with mentees – and also to exchange information. One way of doing this is over email.

One group of mentors has managed to this particularly well. They send emails to their mentees on a regular basis – both to prepare them for the mentoring session as well as to follow up sessions.

Please find below an example of an email sent to mentees after the mentoring session:
