Senior Academic Promotions CV Scheme

Aims

To encourage and support more female academics to apply for promotion within the University, with the aim of addressing the under-representation of women academics in senior positions.

About

The Senior Academic Promotions (SAP) CV Scheme (formerly the WiSETI CV mentoring scheme) brings together female Lecturers, Senior Lecturers and Readers who are thinking of applying for promotion, with senior academics who have extensive experience of the University's Senior Academic Promotions procedures. The process creates an opportunity to have an experienced academic review their CV and promotion paperwork before it is submitted.

Initially only available to STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering Maths and Medicine) disciplines, the Scheme is now open to all academics in all subjects. Although the Scheme was developed primarily to support, and is specifically targeted towards, female academic staff, male academic staff are not excluded and any requests for mentoring from male academics are welcome.

Mentors are senior academics (female or male) who have extensive experience of the University's Senior Academic Promotions procedures and are willing to:

  • review the mentee's CV and/or promotions paperwork;
  • provide constructive feedback based on the mentor's experience of the SAP process;
  • keep all exchanges confidential.

Mentees are Lecturers, Senior Lecturers and Readers who are thinking of applying for promotion either in the next or subsequent rounds and are willing to:

  • be clear about anticipated personal outcomes from the mentoring relationship;
  • consider and review suggestions a mentor makes;
  • as with the mentors, treat all exchanges as confidential.
