Mentor registration

Mentors provide support and technical expertise or assist with lectures to more effectively train teams.

Over the next couple months we will begin connecting team coaches with technical mentors. Where possible, coaches and mentors will be paired based on proximity — however in some instances we may need to pair mentors with coaches outside of their state — to support teams by digital means. While not every coach will require support from a mentor, we anticipate that mentors may have the opportunity to support up to three coaches.

How do technical mentors support coaches?

The type of support mentors provide will vary. As a volunteer, mentors are under no obligation of time or support format. Once connected, coaches will be able to guide mentors on the type of support they and their team need, this could be providing a short guest lecture to teams, or simply answering technical questions that a coach may have to help train their teams more effectively.

Working with Children Check

A valid Working with Children Check is required for all team coaches, assistants and technical mentors. Legislation around these checks are slightly different in each state. You may know this check as a 'Working with Vulnerable People Registration' (ACT), or a 'Blue Card' (QLD). Information on these checks and the requirements needed to fulfil them can be found on the Australian Institute of Family Studies website .

National Police Check

Information on these checks and the requirements needed to fulfil them can be found on the Australian Federal Police website .
