NOCCCD launches its new Mentorship Program for the 2018-19 academic year! All full-time employees are welcome to apply. The application deadline is July 25, 2018. Continue reading for details and application information.
NOCCCD values its employees and is committed to providing opportunities for professional growth and advancement. Recognizing that each individual has unique development needs, the District's Professional Development department has established a year-long structured, yet flexible, learner-centered Mentorship Program. The purpose of this program is to provide participants with learning experiences that support their professional and career goals.
Mentorship fosters an environment of support and collaboration that strengthens and empowers participants who are passionate about their professional growth. Both the mentees and mentors will benefit from this program. Mentors are expected to share their knowledge with their mentee, keeping in mind that the mentee may also offer information of value to the mentor. A mentorship relationship allows for the opportunity to ask questions, learn about different roles in the District, strengthen current work, and/or prepare for transition within the District. It also allows for a broader understanding of the connections across departments, the three institutions, and District Services. The success of the program and what one gets out of it depends largely on the commitment, interest, and active participation of the mentor and mentee.
