All host sites support PEPA participants in a culturally responsive and culturally safe mentoring process. To support this the national PEPA Mentoring Guide has been developed to provide our mentors with an overview of PEPA and guidelines for mentoring before, during and after a PEPA placement. The mentoring guide is divided into four sections:
- Section A provides a brief overview of mentoring
- Section B outlines what is expected of a PEPA mentor
- Section C introduces the PEPA Learning Guide and provides suggestions for how mentors can support the participant’s work through the learning guide and optimise the learning opportunities provided by the placement
- Section D Introduces cultural safety and cultural responsive mentoring which must be considered when working with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander PEPA Participants.
