NASP Mentorship Program

img

The NASP Mentorship Program is available exclusively to NASP members. Participants should engage in ongoing professional support for a minimum of one month; ideally, mentorships should span an academic year. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to consider group mentorship for a richer dialogue in which mentees can learn both from their mentor and other mentees.

By participating in this program, you are acknowledging that NASP has not vetted or screened any mentors, and the establishment of mentor–mentee relationship is purely the responsibility of those directly involved. This program is not intended for one-time consults; we encourage you to post those in the NASP Communities.

Earn CPD Credit

Both mentors and mentees are eligible to claim CPD credit for participating in the program, as long as you can attest that your involvement helped you grow professionally by upgrading your skills or knowledge in a particular area. See categories E and F of our CPD guidelines. Mentors can submit the co-signed Professional Support Verification Form as evidence, which is required for those renewing their NCSP for the first time.
