What is the CPA Australia Mentoring Program?

The CPA Australia Mentoring Program is an eight-month program that pairs a suitable mentor and a mentee in a fantastic learning and development experience.

The program is designed to:

  • support mentees in enhancing existing and developing new skills to support them in their career
  • help mentees further develop their skills and benefit from an experienced member's knowledge, guidance and insights
  • provide mentors the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to a fellow member's career, share their skills and experience and give back to the profession
  • capitalise on the existing skills and knowledge within CPA Australia membership to grow the potential of our future leaders.
