IPEd Mentoring Program

IPEd’s Mentoring Program offers opportunities for experienced editors to share what they know with their colleagues.

The IPEd Mentoring Program for editors was started as a pilot program by the Canberra Society of Editors (CSE).

Since late 2012 it has grown from a CSE project to a national program and now welcomes New Zealand. It still operates from Canberra with the original joint chairs, also known as program coordinators, continuing in that role. They are ably assisted by local coordinators in every state of Australia and the ACT. Between them, they can arrange mentorships no matter what the location of the mentor or mentee. A mentorship offers the opportunity for members to improve their editing skills with professional oversight and feedback from experienced editors.

The program provides a two-way learning experience for both mentor and mentee and is aimed at editors at all levels.

It provides benefits to the editing profession by increasing members’ skills which in turn helps safeguard the reputation of the profession as a whole.

The Mentoring Program Guidance Notes [PDF 678KB] describe how the program works. These notes are free to you to download and pass on as you wish.

If you have any queries, would like to be put in touch with your local coordinator, or would like the mentor or mentee application forms, please email mentorship@iped-editors.org.

We look forward to welcoming you to the program in some capacity if you have skills to share or need expert guidance.
