Project title:Local Government Association

Someone to watch over me: stories from the National Councillor Mentoring Programme.

Project aim:

To create a useful mentoring resource for people in public sector leadership positions, using the experience of council leaders who had been through the Improvement and Development Agency programme.

Project details:

  • organise a series of interviews with councillors who had been through the mentoring programme
  • conduct the interviews, taking care to make participants feel at ease talking about workplace challenges
  • write up the interviews in a case study format, giving each a unique theme
  • put the case studies together to make a final report
  • edit the forward section.
