    Software Testing Clinic (http://softwaretestingclinic.com) Midlands is fast approaching and as ever we are looking for budding mentors to come help us with each session.

    Mentors play a very important part of each clinic. Our goal is to have 1 mentor per 3-4 students. The role of the mentor is to support the students they are paired with. The topics vary month to month, so some sessions you may want to be a student, but if you feel experienced enough on the topic I suggest being a mentor.

    To help support potential mentors, we're providing a session purely focused on what it means to be an SWTC mentor and how Software Testing Clinic works.

    We'll answer any questions, give you some tools to assist you in mentoring and take on any suggestions for future sessions. So come to take that next step and become a mentor in a safe supported environment.
