What is the difference between a mentor/mentee partnership and a peer partnership?
A peer partnership is a mentoring partnership between two experienced QA professionals who would benefit from a parallel information exchange, as opposed to the “teacher-student” model of a traditional Mentor-Mentee partnership.
What is the difference between training and mentoring?
Training is generally delivered according to a predetermined curriculum, with the trainee carrying the burden of meeting the curriculum’s deliverables. Mentoring is a more customized activity, that assigns deliverables to the mentor as well as to the mentee. In addition, the role of mentor may be to serve as a “role model,” whereas the role of a trainer is generally to deliver a specific content without having a “partnership” with the trainee.
Will the personal and professional information I share through the Mentoring Program be kept confidential?
Yes. All program applicants are required to sign a confidentiality statement at the time they apply. In addition, confidentiality statements are built into the Partnership Plans and MPC Standard Operating Procedures. Finally, all participants should adhere to all applicable privacy policies and procedures instituted by their employers.
