A mentor is linked to each practitioner, to support them on their journey to registration.
Responsibilities of the mentor:
To be a mentor you need to be a registered Public Health Practitioner, and have a willingness to help other practitioners through the registration process.
Mentors are not generally required to provide mentoring support to more than one practitioner at a time. Practitioners vary in the length of time they take to complete the programme, but it is usually a minimum of a year and often longer. Support can be provided in whatever format is most helpful (eg face to face, written, over the telephone) subject to agreement between the practitioner and mentor.
