WGUK Mentoring Scheme 2018


Further to the successful piloting of mentoring tapes in 2015 and the continued success in over the past two season, we are now looking to compile a list of all individuals who would be prepared to volunteer as a Mentor at WGUK contests during 2018.

What is the WGUK Mentoring Scheme?

A WGUK Mentor will be an instructor (drawn from a pool of volunteers) who will provide an extra tape to competing units. The instructor will provide feedback from a fellow staff members point of view. Depending on their experience, they may comment on any aspect of what they see, with a view to giving helpful guidance and ideas without the need to provide a score. To be clear, this is not a sixth judge, it is peer to peer support from within the Winter Guard instructors community. This approach may also have the added benefits of giving more instructors insight into the judging process and therefore boosting our pool of judges in the future.

If you would be interested in becoming a WGUK Mentor can you please provide by email to mentoring@wguk.org.uk, the following information;

1. Your name and contact details (email)
2. Your current affiliation/responsibilities within your organisation (e.g. “staff for our A Guard unit”)
3. The 2018 shows that you would be available for and, if you have preference, which classes they are happy to do tapes for.

We will then contact all those who replied and discuss their involvement and ensure they are happy and clear what is required and how the scheme works.

Please respond by 31st December at the very latest.
