Mentoring logs

It is very important you submit your mentoring logs regularly as we use it for various things. You must ensure you complete your mentoring log accurately and submit them on time. They need to be emailed to In order to ensure we have enough time to match your mentoring log with UNITEMPS, we require you to send the mentoring log by 9am on the Monday following your session. The instructions on how to fill out a mentoring log is in the Mentoring Log spreadsheet on the first tab. We need them for a variety of things including: evaluation of the programme, updates to teachers and timesheets.
