This project is part of the 2020 Good Practice Grants, which helped Advance HE members to develop and share innovative practice.
The Vice-Chancellor’s Mentoring Programme was launched in 2017 as part of the University of Nottingham’s activities to develop an inclusive culture. It signalled a personal commitment from Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West CBE to support senior leaders with protected characteristics more fully.
Now in its third year, 26 individuals have been mentored personally by the Vice-Chancellor. 57 unsuccessful applicants have also been matched to alternative Executive Board and other senior leader mentors. This series of case studies provide insights into the experiences of some of those who have taken part in the programme and what they have gained from doing so.
