This cross-council program brings together Council Officers from all levels to learn from each other by sharing knowledge, expertise and skills. It enables those seeking professional development (mentees) and those sharing their knowledge (mentors) to gain new perspectives and insights into the many rewarding career and leadership opportunities in Local Government in Victoria.
The program aims to develop and retain talented people within the Victorian Local Government sector by encouraging communication between new and experienced professionals working in the field.
It provides opportunities for mentors to contribute to the wellbeing of the sector by passing on their knowledge and experience to others and to enhance their leadership skills through reflection on their own practices and exposure to new ideas, interests and opportunities for challenge.
The program allows mentees to self-manage their professional development in a ‘safe place’ where they can gain independent, objective perspectives and enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence.
