Coaching & Mentoring

Symmons Madge Associates

Professional Mentoring Scheme


Many employers are keen to assist their staff to become Chartered or Technical Members of a recognised Professional Institution, but either lack the detailed knowledge base to do so, or find it difficult to commit staff to maintain the required level of support over an extended period.  To assist these employers, Symmons Madge Associates (SMA) can provide both the expertise of a knowledgeable Mentor and the ability to provide high quality personal development for each aspiring Chartered, IEng or Technical Member.

Whereas we began by delivering the initiative to employers with graduates seeking Membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers, over the last few years we have broadened this area of our work and now, in addition to the ICE, help candidates from a variety of engineering backgrounds to achieve Professional recognition from a wide range of Engineering Institutions. This includes the IHE, IMechE, CICES, RICS and IStructE as well as more recently, the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation (CIHT), Institute of Lighting Professionals (ILP) and Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)

No matter which Institution is involved, we have found that staff who receive strong professional mentoring and support, progress towards the achievement of the Institution’s competencies and requirements, quickly and efficiently.  The result is a cost-effective process culminating in the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to move your staff forward to professional qualification and the resulting benefits to your company.
