You can access the RPS mentor database by completing a 'Find a mentor' form and agreeing to the mentoring terms and conditions. We have mentors in all sectors and at every level of practice for all membership grades.

Once you register as a mentee, you will see a list of mentors who match your criteria with their contact email addresses. You can then choose your mentor. Once the mentor accepts your request, you are able to develop the type of mentoring support you need, in a way that suits you both. To help us evaluate the success of our database, you will be invited to provide feedback after six months.

How do I join the mentoring scheme as a mentee?

You can register as a mentee through our database by clicking the mentoring tab on the Networks homepage or contact someone through your Local Practice Forum or through a virtual network.

In order to become a mentee, you need to fill out our Find a mentor form online. First, you'll need to accept the terms and conditions of using the service. We'll then ask you to fill out some personal details such as your name, contact details and job title. In step 2, you'll be asked about any sectors of interest and your current employment status. We'll also ask you why you are looking for a mentor in step 3. In the last them, we'll enquire about how you would prefer to conduct your mentoring and in what format.

How do I become a mentor?

We offer a number of opportunities for you to become a mentor locally or virtually. If you want to support pharmacists in your expert area of practice, you can register as a mentor on our database and specify the type and location of mentoring. If you're looking for mentor development events, your local practice forum is the place to go.

When registering as a mentor through the RPS Mentoring service, you'll need to accept the terms and conditions of using the service. We'll then ask you to fill out some personal details such as your name, contact details and job title. In step 2, you'll be asked about any previous experience with mentoring and your sector of work; you can expand upon this in step 3. You'll also be able to specify what you'd like to be able to work with a mentee about, e.g. talking through specific issues or developing a career plan. We'll then ask you about how you would prefer to conduct your mentoring and in what format.

Searching for a mentor

You can find a mentor by registering on the RPS mentor database.

Multiple matches

If you receive more than one match, we advise you to email each of your matched mentors explaining the type of support you are looking for and ask them to respond with what they are able to offer in the way of mentorship. This will enable you to choose your best match. Once you have found your mentor, please email the others who were matched to say that you will not be proceeding with the mentoring relationship as you have found a suitable mentor.

No matches

If you fail to come up with a match and have tried widening your search, please call our Support Team to help you with your search. You can also make a posting on relevant RPS networks (but this is not confidential).
