IPEd National Mentoring Program

Posted on: 29 June 2015

During the conference in May, an agreement was signed between the Canberra Society of Editors(CSE) and IPEd for CSE’s mentoring program to officially become the IPEd National Mentoring Program.

The program was established by CSE in 2012, followed by a successful pilot, launched in June 2013,that invited other societies to get involved.

By January this year, all the societies had joined the program and CSE decided it should now sit with IPEd. CSE will continue to coordinate the program.

The mentoring program offers the opportunity for members of any of the Australian societies of editors to improve their skills with professional oversight and feedback from experienced editors.

It provides a two-way learning experience for both mentor and mentee and is aimed at editors of all levels. It provides benefits to the editing profession by increasing members’ skills, helping to safeguard the reputation of the profession as a whole.


The Mentoring Program Guidance Notes, which explain how the program works, were released in April and are available on the IPEd website.
