Member (MRSC) and Fellows (FRSC) are eligible to become a mentor. You do not need to have had years of experience in order to become a mentor. We are always looking for mentors from both academic and industrial backgrounds, and a variety of experience is welcome.
“It’s a great idea, and I have surprised myself about how challenging it can be and also rewarding when a suggestion I have made has had a positive impact.” – Current mentor
Become a mentor
To become a mentor we require you to attend a day of training where we give you the opportunity to practice the skills needed to be a confident mentor. Alternatively, if you already have experience as a mentor, you can attend remotely by booking onto a Zoom training session.
“As an academic, I found the RSC training made me a better mentor for my own students, and the scheme is an excellent opportunity to network with outstanding early career chemists. I’m learning just as much from my RSC mentee than she is learning from me.”
Details of our next mentor training and Zoom courses can be found online, or email the Careers team with 'Mentoring' in the subject and we will follow up with you.
