NEW: Smart Mentoring for HE Technical Staff

in collaboration the NTDC

(National Technicians Development Centre)

We are delighted to announce that we are now working in partnership with NTDC, The National Technicians Development Centre.


If ever there was a group of staff that could 'own' SMart Mentoring,  then Technical Staff must be it.


Technical staff are the link between academic staff and their research, learning and teaching and fee paying students. They also have huge managerial and supervisory responsibilities from the management of students, staff and projects and are found across all university departments. 


NTDC Smart Mentoring is an opportunity to be mentored at distance by university based experts and specialists with knowledge of techniques, equipment, tools and new innovations, but also with mentors that have an understanding of front line issues faced on almost a daily basis and relevant soft skills that can support effective day to day delivery.


Using phone, computer and tablet technology for remote NTDC Smart Mentoring still allows for live labs, demonstrations, equipment usage and sharing real live techniques in action.


As well as role specific support, improving teaching and learning, strengthening coaching techniques, working effectively in teams or with students in the front line, being the first point of contact for students who may have health and/or stress issues and developing employability skills are just a few examples of other possible foci.
