ICE mentoring - pairing mentors and mentees

ICE mentoring helps our members to find mentors.

ICE’s mentoring search service offers two platforms available exclusively to ICE members. They are designed to match members looking for mentors to help them during the initial professional development (IPD) stage of their membership journey, and for those seeking general career mentoring.

The IPD mentoring service aims to help members progress towards their membership goal by helping them find suitable mentors to support them with their IPD. The service is for current graduates, apprentices or experienced engineers aiming to become professionally qualified as EngTech MICE, IEng MICE or CEng MICE, who may not have the benefit of structured IPD mentoring within their own organisation; and for those who can act as mentors for them.

Join as an IPD mentee

The online platform will help you to find a suitable mentor to support with your IPD. As a mentee you can specify the professional qualification you are aiming for, so you can search mentors with the right expertise. To find an IPD mentor:

  1. Set up your account on ICE’s IPD mentoring platform.
  2. Complete your profile as a mentee.
  3. Search the system to find a suitable mentor and contact them with a proposal for mentoring.
  4. Once you both agree to the match, you can begin your mentoring relationship.

Join as an IPD mentor

ICE members who act as mentors for those seeking professional qualification can achieve significant professional and personal benefits from being in this role. To offer your support as an IPD mentor:

  1. Set up your account on ICE's IPD mentoring platform.
  2. Complete your profile as a mentor and potential mentees will start sending you their proposals.
  3. Review proposals and choose whether to accept suggested matches.
  4. Once you both agree to the match, you can begin your mentoring relationship.

IPD mentoring, mentor-supported training and IPD Online

The IPD mentoring platform supports ICE’s mentor-supported training programme and our IPD Online platform.

The IPD mentoring platform helps connect mentors and mentees. Once you have connected, your relationship will continue outside the platform.

Mentor-supported training helps individuals complete their IPD with the support of a mentor, as they work towards becoming professionally qualified with ICE. The IPD mentoring platform can be used to help connect mentees with IPD mentors.

You will need to apply to be an ICE approved mentor, if you are not already, to offer your support to mentees on mentor-supported training.

IPD Online supports trainees and mentors to register their training, record and assess evidence, and complete their IPD.

Trainees will be able to access IPD Online via MyICE when they have registered on mentor-supported training, and found a mentor.

The careers mentoring service is a valuable resource for members seeking general mentoring to help them achieve their career goals. It is open to ICE members at all stages of their career.

The platform is designed to match members with mentors, based on expertise and skills. We offer online resources, advice and guidance to help you make the most of the mentoring experience.

Join as a careers mentee

Our service can help you to find a suitable mentor on the online platform, who could support and help you achieve specific goals. As a mentee you can specify the type of knowledge and skills you would like to improve, so you can search mentors with the right expertise.
