Information for mentors and reviewers - PgCAP and PASSPoRT

As part of the of the PgCAP and PASSPoRT schemes, we need the support from those colleagues that already hold Associate, Fellow or Senior Fellowship Status from Advance HE. 

Following each cohort graduating from the PgCAP or after each PASPoRT panel meeting,  invitations will be extended to UoS members become mentors to support colleagues registered in the PgCAP and submitting their applications for PASSPoRT and to act as reviewers for PASSPoRT panels.

In order to support the professional development of mentors and reviewers, training will be provided those joining the scheme and also, events for engagements and peer support will be organised, as it is to us important to foster a community of practice with those that are supporting the professional growth of colleagues across UoS.
