Mentoring and counselling

The core mission of Jesuit Education is to create a healthy, creative and vibrant ambience where every learner gets an opportunity to develop his/her personality holistically - thinking (head), emotional (heart) and kinaesthetic (hand) skills. Mentoring system draws its inspiration from Ignatian pedagogy, Cura personalis-learner’s accompaniment to realise his/her aspirations and "care for the entire person." The College makes all necessary arrangements to make mentoring process enriching, empowering and joyful experience. Mentoring at our institution is organized with intent to foster professional relationship in which an experienced person (Mentor/Teacher) assists a less experienced person (Mentee/Student) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance his/her professional and personal development. The mentoring relationship is built on mutual trust, respect, and communication, and involves both parties meeting regularly to exchange ideas, discuss progress and set goals for further development. A mentor does not need to know or to provide all the answers; instead the mentor encourages the mentee to use his/her available resources to excel solutions.

The objectives of mentoring are to:
• Create a conducive learning environment
• Help in achieving the institutional motto, vision, mission and objectives
• Foster healthy relationship/collaboration between all the stakeholders
• Understand the learners profile, ability and needs for extending appropriate support and
   decision making
• Inspire and facilitate mentees to realise their academic, career and personal aspirations
