RTPI launches second year of NURTURE mentoring programme

The RTPI has launched its pilot mentoring programme, NURTURE, for a second year.

The programme, designed to support the professional development of chartered RTPI members, is a part of the RTPI’s Corporate Strategy 2020-2030. It is designed to provide structured, professional mentoring for RTPI’s members at a ‘mid-career’ point and enable them to make their next career step.

86% of mentees who responded to the RTPI survey in the programme’s first year left feeling prepared for broader professional responsibilities following the end of the programme, while 82% of mentors stated they felt they benefitted from being a mentor.

I am delighted that we are working with Women in Transport again to launch the second programme of NURTURE. The mentoring scheme is one of our commitments to support our members in their careers and with their professional development.

RTPI Head of Membership, Martine Koch


Applications for mentees and mentors are now open for two weeks until 5 March 2023. NURTURE will include training for both mentees and mentors in May 2023 and a commitment to six mentoring sessions over the course of nine months up until January 2024.

”It was a pleasure to support the RTPI with the creation and delivery of the successful NURTURE pilot mentoring programme", says Sonya Byers, Women in Transport CEO. "Applying everything we have learned through our Advance programme to support another fantastic membership organisation. Angela and I are thrilled to be supporting the RTPI with a second programme and very much looking forward to meeting our new cohort of mentees and mentors.”
