CIHT Mentoring is available in North East & Cumbria to all CIHT members interested in or working towards an Engineering Council or Chartered Transport Planning Professional registration. A friendly panel of mentors can be contacted, and a mentor assigned to you.

Our regional mentors provide advice, guidance, and encouragement to their mentees on their journey to becoming professionally qualified. Mentors will help their mentees identify the knowledge, skills, and experience for the relevant competence requirements of their professional qualification and advise on demonstrating this in the submission and at the professional review interview.
