The LLA have now launched our new system called ConneX. If you would like to register as a mentor or mentee then please click here.

If you are already signed up to our old Coaching & Mentoring database, please ensure that you log into the new ConneX system to check that your your current profile and relationships have been properly migrated over from CoachNet to ConneX. 

What is mentoring?

"Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be."
Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring

Mentoring allows:

  • Off-line support to encourage innovation and creativity, through an external sounding board able to challenge assumptions
  • Working beyond professional/organisational boundaries, to develop wider understanding and recognise the ‘bigger picture’
  • Development of leadership skills for inevitable ongoing changes: ‘time out’ to reflect on own and others’ learning and leadership approaches
  • Feedback, challenge and support from an impartial person, able to ask powerful questions and unlock potential

Mentors on the NHS London register, ConneX, have all completed an accredited mentor skills programme and undertake regular supervision and development of their skills. ConneX provides a confidential service to match mentees with appropriate mentors, as well as an online facility to manage mentoring relationships.

If you wish to become a mentor or mentee, but are not yet registered, apply here.
