    SWTC London - Become a mentor

    ‎6‎:‎00‎ ‎PM to ‎9‎:‎00‎ ‎PMEqual Experts, 30 Brock St, London, NW1 3FG

    Software Testing Clinic (http://softwaretestingclinic.com/) is about to start it's 3rd season in London, and we are looking for budding mentors to come help us with each session.

    This initial session for season 3 is a session purely focused on what it means to be an SWTC mentor, what's expected from mentors and how the Software Testing Clinic works in general and how us hosts will help and support you.

    Mentors play a very important part of each clinic. Our goal is to have 1 mentor per 3-4 students for each of the season 3 sessions. The role of the mentor is to support the students they are paired with, providing your own experiences to help the students learn more about the topic f the evening. These topics vary month to month, so some sessions you may want to be a student, but if you feel experienced enough on the topic then you should sign up as a mentor.

    In this session for mentors, we'll answer any questions you have, give some great mentoring tips and tricks, and will also supply some useful tools to assist you in mentoring in the future sessions. So come take that next step and become a mentor in a safe supported environment.

    To attend this session, please sign up on our meetup site: https://www.meetup.com/Software-Testing-Clinic/events/250173460/
