The ADA NSW Mentoring Program is designed to facilitate partnerships where a mentor can share their personal knowledge, experience and perspective with an independent mentee, to foster their personal and professional judgement.

Eligibility for Mentees is within the first seven years of registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (Ahpra). Mentors must have at least seven years experience registered with Ahpra.

Current and upcoming program timelines as well as further information about the program are outlined below. 

2021 Program Timeline: July 2021 - June 2022

  • Applications open: 5 April 2021 
  • Applications close: 23 April 2021 
  • Mentoring induction session: 27 June 2021
  • Program closes: 31 March 2022

Program Objectives

  • To provide a structured yet flexible opportunity for colleagues to work together in a mutually beneficial partnership and in a strictly confidential setting
  • To allow a more experienced practitioner to provide guidance and support to a less experienced colleague as they transition into the profession
  • To encourage mentors to embrace the professional responsibility of engaging with and supporting younger colleagues
  • Improved service to the community by supporting practitioners in their early careers.

Program Benefits

  • Flexible and negotiable: determined by the goals and objectives of the mentee
  • Confidential: an essential factor in establishing mutually respectful, honest and open communication
  • Reduced stress: for new practitioners who can seek advice and confide in experienced practitioners
  • Personal fulfillment: through passing on knowledge and experience to new practitioners.
