Mentorship programme

The EAIE Mentorship programme is a collaborative platform for EAIE members to develop supportive relationships in the international education community. Through this exclusive programme, members will build mutual learning partnerships and connect with the global EAIE community. Mentees can work on their specific professional goals together with a mentor, while mentors can develop their coaching and leadership skills. We pair individuals new to their positions with experienced professionals who can offer valuable guidance and advice. This year’s programme will run from May to December.

As a mentee you have the opportunity to interact with an experienced professional from the field and ask advice on specific projects or activities. You will build a collaborative cross generational relationship with your mentor and engage in mutual learning. You will work closely together on creating an action plan for reaching your developmental goals with specific objectives and actions.


  • You are new to your field, joining within the last five years, or have recently changed positions.
  • You are ready to take initiative and define concrete career goals. 
  • You are eager to learn and interested in professional development. 
  • You are prepared to share your own knowledge and perspectives with your mentor.


As a mentor you will guide and empower the next generation while gaining new insights and energy into your work. Engage in mutual learning and strengthen your leadership skills by spending a few hours every month mentoring an individual who is new to their position. You will work on an action plan together and look for ways to connect your mentee with professionals from your network.


  • You have more than five years of experience in your position or area of expertise. 
  • You are enthusiastic about sharing your best practice examples and career experiences.
  • You communicate effectively with others and can be trusted to keep the information your mentee shares confidential.

An EAIE mentee's experience

Mentee testimonial
The most enriching part of the EAIE mentorship programme was the opportunity to share ideas with and learn from an inspiring professional. I appreciated my mentor's guidance. His advice was extremely valuable.
