 About Scottish Mentoring Network

Scottish Mentoring Network has been in existence since 1997 originally as an informal grouping of individuals and organisations interested in mentoring.

Since then, the number of organisations involved in mentoring has increased dramatically, as has the range of provision across all sectors. Our local and thematic networking events enable members to share best practice and make connections, and our website allows members to have their own profile for their mentoring project.  We have developed a Project Quality Award and Training courses which help our members to undertake continued development of their mentoring practice and demonstrate that their project meets the Quality Practices detailed in the SMN Good Practice Guide. 

SMN continues to develop products and services for our members and strives to support mentoring projects across all sectors in Scotland through raising awareness of the impact of high quality mentoring on life chances and influencing the development of policy, practice and resources.
