Is mentoring on your radar? Mentoring MatchUP is an ideal tool to improve your internal mentoring. It is very user-friendly, and keeps mentors and mentees engaged in the mentoring program. At a glance, you can see how each mentor and mentee are performing.
Mentoring MatchUP enables your organisation to deliver a robust mentoring program.
At a glance, here’s how Mentoring MatchUP can help you:
Identifies willing mentors and mentees
Uses a psychometric online tool to fit mentors and mentees
Sets up appointments
Prompts useful discussions between both parties
Resolves any differences quickly
How does it work?
A pilot mentoring program is the first step. The feedback from the pilot can be used to modify subsequent mentoring programs. A typical pilot session would include 10–20 mentors and 10–20 mentees. Ideally the pilot is a representative sample of the organisation.

"You ll find Mentoring MatchUP is a seamless method of delivering a quality mentoring program for your organisation."
Mentoring MatchUp is SCORM compliant. We can host the entire project for you. Or if you prefer we can work collaboratively with you to host the project on your system. To avoid costs, we’d prefer to host the pilot project for you.
Idea: To add some novelty, we could encourage a short reverse mentoring session. The mentee swaps roles for several minutes. Phone Apps and Social media are a couple of examples where reverse mentoring works well.
