Mentoring is a relationship which gives people the opportunity to share their professional and personal skills and experiences, and to grow and develop in the process.  ACEP manages the mentoring project for the Emerging Leaders Development Program for the Australia Council for the Arts.  In its role, ACEP applies the key principles of mentoring to ensure that emerging leaders selected from all states of Australia are paired with appropriate mentors to enhance their learning and their growth as leaders.  The program encourages the development of practical skills which address the identified needs of individual participants.

ACEP has sourced and trained a diverse pool of mentors from a range of fields:

  • Arts
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • New and emerging technologies
  • Tourism and hospitality
  • Education
