University mentoring schemes
The University run a range of mentoring schemes for different staff groups. Although broadly similar each scheme is tailored to meet the particular needs of the participants. A summary of the schemes is provided below, but please visit the respective scheme webpages for more details and access to the relevant online application form.
The Elizabeth Garrett Mentoring Programme
The Elizabeth Garrett Mentoring Programme has been created for women in senior levels in academia at the University of St Andrews.
The progamme is sponsored by the Principal, Professor Sally Mapstone.
It aims to support women in, or aspiring to, academic leadership roles, and to develop leadership capability.
The establishment of this scheme acknowledges the need to increase representation of women at senior levels of academia, including at St Andrews, and seeks to address this inequality. It aims to help women achieve their true potential in whatever capacity. It recognises that there should be no obstacles for women of ability.

Teaching, Research & Academic Mentoring Scheme
The 2018-19 academic year marks the 12th anniversary of the highly successful cross-institutional mentoring scheme developed through collaboration between the University of St Andrews (CAPOD) and the University of Dundee (OPD).
We are delighted to have Abertay University and Glasgow School of Art with us on the scheme again this year, and we welcome The James Hutton Institute for its first cycle.
The matching process for the 2018-19 cycle closed on 31st August 2018.
Applications are welcome at anytime but new applicants will not be matched until Summer 2019.
The 2019-20 cycle will launch on the 28th June 2019. Those who have applied during the interim period need not reapply and will automatically be adding to the matching process for 2019-20.

Professional Staff Mentoring Scheme
For all University professional/support staff from schools & units.
The aim of this scheme is to support staff and help them to achieve (and develop) specific objectives that they set for themselves. In the majority of matches it is envisaged that mentors & mentees will be from different schools / units. This helps to promote cross-school / unit working, and has proved to be successful.
For more information, please visit: Professional Staff Mentoring Scheme.
Academic Probationers Mentoring Scheme
Unlike the schemes above this scheme is managed locally within Academic Schools and is not directly coordinated by CAPOD.
The aim of this scheme is to provide support for newly appointed academics. Schools are also encouraged to include Teaching Fellows in this scheme.
Please note: the mentoring information below should be read in conjunction with the Academic Review for New Starts (All Academic Staff)
