MEANZ and NSTP Mentoring Pilot Programme Evaluation. Final Report
Robertson, Sally
New Zealand Council for Educational Research
The Museum Education Association of New Zealand (MEANZ) and the National Services Te Paerangi (NSTP) set up a pilot mentoring programme for museum educators in New Zealand. The overall goals for the programme were to: (1) facilitate professional relationships between museum educators who are in need of information and assistance and those who can offer knowledge and support; and (2) build the capacity of the museum education sector by capturing and sharing the exchange of knowledge and expertise that occurs between mentors and mentees. Three pairs of mentors/mentees took part in the pilot programme. The programme took place over six weeks (from mid-November until Christmas 2010). The programme was shorter than initially planned due to some unexpected delays. The evaluation was completed in January 2011. All participants felt they had learnt a lot from the mentoring programme. The participants were very complimentary about their mentors/mentees. They felt they had met their goals and there were also unexpected additional learnings. Many of the mentors and mentees plan on continuing to stay in contact with one another and a few plan on meeting in person again. Many participants are already planning on making changes/additions to their work and sharing their learnings with others in their organisation. It may be useful for MEANZ to monitor how this pilot programme continues and what impact it has in the longer term. Appended are: (1) Focus group interview schedule; (2) Online survey for mentors and mentees; (3) Follow-up mentor and mentee interview schedule; (4) Information provided by MEANZ and NSTP about mentoring; and (5) MEANZ and NSTP's final report template.
