Thank you to everyone who applied to our first SDUK mentoring scheme. Applications are now closed.

We are delighted with the response and with the insights that the applications are giving us into the wider issues that are affecting mid-career directors.

The large number applying has clearly demonstrated that directors at this level are feeling deeply isolated and unsupported by the industry. This pilot mentoring scheme shows clearly the importance of directors supporting each other, and we are determined to make it yield positive results.

The Training and Development Committee are working through the applications and will be in touch with everyone who applied in early September.
