Pacific Wayfinders mentoring programme

Motivation Australia’s Pacific Wayfinders mentoring programme responds to a need for more continuous professional development opportunities for health workers in Pacific Island countries (PICs), as part of the larger Pacific Wayfinders project.

Programme summary

Through the structured programme, mentees will be encouraged to drive the mentoring process and discussion, enabling them to gain insights and perspectives from experienced mentors, helping them to establish and work towards career goals, build confidence and develop their professional skills.

The mentoring programme pairs health workers in Pacific Island Countries (PICs) with experienced health and business professionals in other PICs, Australia and New Zealand. This gives mentees an opportunity to meet and communicate with leaders in their field.

The 2020/21 Pacific Wayfinders mentoring programme will run from November 2020 – June 2021.
