National Mentoring Program for editors

Posted on: 07 April 2014

Want to develop your editorial skills and build a career in editing? Join the National Mentoring Program.


For an information pack and application form, contact Adele Walker (SA Coordinator).

The National Mentoring Program for editors, organised by the Canberra Society of Editors, offers the opportunity for members of any societies of editors to improve their editing skills with professional oversight and feedback from experienced editors.

Mentoring is where one individual provides support, encouragement and advice to another, based on their knowledge and life and experience relative to the mentoring theme. It provides a two-way learning experience for both mentor and mentee, which can encourage deep satisfaction and numerous benefits in many personal, career, organisational and developmental areas.

The National Mentoring Program is aimed at editors at all levels, for example:

  • editors entering the profession
  • editors preparing for accreditation
  • people returning to the profession after time off
  • editors with any level of experience who want to brush up their skills or move into a new area of editing
  • editors who have accepted a job which is outside their usual area of expertise. 

The program brings benefits to the editing profession by increasing members’ skills. This, in turn, helps safeguard the reputation of the profession as a whole.
