The blend consists of online learning, a forum, live webinar sessions and Face-2-Face meetings with the mentors. The typical duration is 3 months, but this can sometimes extend to a year. Mentors come from all walks of life and can be people who just went through the programme themselves or people who have many years of work experience. They are chosen based on their right values and attitudes towards mentoring. Mentors have to be reliable, want to make a difference, be solution-oriented, be open to challenge and non-judgemental. IME is careful that the career aspiration of the mentee is matched by the mentor, that is, the mentor has really gone through the same experience themselves.
