Victorian YP Mentoring Program 2018

The SSSI Young Professionals Mentoring Program 2018 facilitates mentoring connections between students nearing the end of their degree programs and professionals working in the surveying and spatial sciences industry. This is a structured, fixed term program from August 2018 to June 2019 and will include monthly meetings between mentors and mentees to discuss given topics.

This program aims to:

  • empower students entering the surveying and spatial sciences industry for early career success
  • build leadership in young professionals working in the industry
  • provide a platform to strengthen young professionals in the industry


As a student or young professional, if you want to fast track your early career, we'll help you achieve this!


One CPD point per meeting, limited to a maximum of 5 CPD points per year (as per section 3.10 of the SSSI CPD Guide).


Please complete the following survey: For further information please email Applications are limited and priority will go to SSSI members. Applications close Thursday August 9th.


People outside of Melbourne are encouraged to apply, both mentors and mentees however the mentoring relationship may occur through skype or digital means outside of Melbourne. If you are unable to attend the launch night due to distance, we will provide alternative matching options.


For the full year program there is no cost for Mentors. For mentees, the price is to be confirmed but will be about $20 for SSSI Members (note that Membership is free for students) and less than $100 for Non SSSI Members.


If you are driven, curious about the profession, self-motivated and passionate about making the most of your early career, this program will help you to network and meet the right people. Participate to learn about the skills needed to succeed and give you insights into what the real world is like in your line of work. We welcome members of all commissions to join, and are looking for people who are in their last or second last year of their undergraduate degree or any year of a postgraduate degree, are new to the industry or are just looking for a career boost.


To be able to relate to these mentees, we are seeking mentors who are professionals in the industry looking to further develop their leadership and management skills and pass on some of their cultivated knowledge and experience about the industry.

We can offer you the chance to influence the people who will change the future, discover fresh perspectives and to earn CPD points for your professional career development.

Participation requirements

The twelve-month program will involve approximately 1 hour per month from the mentee and mentor - a total of 10 hours, plus 2 hours for the inception event.

Mentors and mentees that are successful in their applications to the program will be paired by SSSI. Their contact details will be shared with each other and they will initially meet during a launch event in their region
