Mentoring is a learning process, which involves building mutually beneficial, personal and reciprocal relationship while focusing on achievement through the key element of emotional support[1].

This learning process includes both mentors and mentees and means personal development for them in varying ways. Sometimes, mentors and mentees work better when considering the necessary skills, knowledge, and competences for the process to run smoothly and even more beneficially for both sides.

In the Competences framework, mentors and mentees can check their level of knowledge, skills, and competences, as well as where they should be setting their aims.

On the other hand, the Guidelines provide some broader strokes and tips for both mentors and mentees.
