RFG Cross-Member Mentoring Programme 2024

What is the mentoring programme?

This programme aims to help develop rail freight skills across the sector and supports individuals with their own personal development. You can join the programme as a mentor, mentee or both.

Based on your individual skills, experience and needs, you will be matched with someone from a different organisation, where you will meet virtually (or in person if you prefer and geography allows) between 6-12 times in 2024. Both mentors and mentees will be supported with training and resources before you get started to ensure the relationship is as effective as possible.


What is mentoring?

Mentoring is a learning relationship, involving the sharing of skills, knowledge, and expertise through developmental conversations, experience sharing, and role modelling


Who is it for?

Anyone who is working in an RFG member company.

You don’t have to be in a rail freight-specific role to join the programme.
