SSSI Mentoring Program Application - MENTEE
The SSSI Mentoring Program brings together mentors (those sharing their knowledge and experience) with mentees (those seeking knowledge, experience, insights and awareness about the profession) in the Australian Geospatial Industry - surveying and spatial professionals, the custodians of quality spatial data creation and management.

Please review the detailed information about the program prior to completing this application form - see

This mentee application form is for someone wishing to be mentored by someone with surveyor/spatial industry experience. If you would instead like to apply to be a mentor, please visit: [ insert link here ].

Hints and Tips:
- Input your email address carefully, be sure to input the address you intend to use for the length of the program.
- The matching process considers the multiple-choice preferences you give in answers at the beginning of the matching process to quickly pre-match mentor-mentee pairs who have similar requirements (Gender, Location, and Discipline), before progressing to the paragraph answers towards the end of the form for those who cannot be pre-matched using the multiple-choice preferences. Because of this, please put extra effort into your written answers and include details that are not covered in the multiple-choice questions.

I understand that, due to the program operating on a national scale, the mentor assigned to me based on my preferences may not be local to me. In this case, I am happy to proceed with taking part in the program, conducting meetings via phone call or teleconference. *
This program operates on a national scale, aiming to strengthen the industry as a whole. This allows mentors and mentees to be paired with their preferred matches based on technical and work experience preferences, gender preferences, etc. If you are not matched with a mentor local to you, fortnightly mentor-mentee meetings will be conducted using phone calls, Skype, Zoom teleconferencing or similar as face-to-face meetings will not be convenient.
I understand that this program focusses on soft skills (not technical skills), and does not have any work experience or internship components. *
I have the time capacity and agree to this commitment for each fortnight for the length of the program, as described below? *
This program requires a time commitment of 1.5 hours per fortnight for mentees, which will be spent completing the pre-meeting survey for the assigned topic, arranging a time and date to meet with your mentor, and completing the post-meeting survey for the assigned topic. These tasks are to be completed within each assigned fortnight.
I understand that, in order to meet the program requirements and graduate from the program, I need to meet with my mentor for all 6 topics and complete the post-meeting survey for these topics, within the timeframes required. *
