Joondalup Learning Precinct Mentoring Program
Staff from the City of Joondalup, Edith Cowan University, the WA Police Academy, and North Metropolitan TAFE have the unique opportunity to take part in a cross-organisational mentoring program supported by the Joondalup Learning Precinct (JLP) Board.
The program brings staff together to enrich, enhance and share experiences and to strengthen relationships between Precinct partners. Program goals include:
- Developing individuals and improving their performance and effectiveness in the workplace
- Providing opportunities to develop networks
- Strengthening inter-agency relationships
- Improving inter-agency communication
- Providing a sustainable support mechanism for staff
- Supporting professional development activities.
Evaluation of mentor programs has shown that mentors find personal satisfaction in sharing their skills and experience with others. Mentees also benefit from the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base and learn from an experienced person.
