This Creative Mentor Network briefing is for those artists and practitioners who are part of The Mighty Creatives’ Creative Mentor Network.

In this session, we will be sharing the new Creative Mentor Portal. This is the new online platform where all paperwork will be stored to ensure it’s stored securely and safely on our online system. We will be joined by Rachel Hathway, our Impact and Data Manager.

The Context

We know that there is quite a bit of paperwork as a Creative Mentor. This includes:

  • The referral form,
  • Your action records,
  • Your skills assessments,
  • The young person’s risk assessments/behaviour forms.

We also know that managing passwords to these and keeping them safe can be a stressful part of the Creative Mentor role.

In order to minimise this, we have invested significant funds and staff time into developing an online Creative Mentor Portal. Active Creative Mentors (those with Mentees) will receive a login to the portal and you will be able to:

  • Access your Creative Mentees referral form and contact details
  • Access contact details of professionals
  • See the details of your contract (how many hours you have in total, how many delivered to date and how many you have remaining)
  • Complete your action records (details of your sessions)
  • Complete your skills assessments.

This is going to make it so much easier for you to manage your Creative Mentoring time.

The Session

In this briefing session, you will learn:

  • How to access the Creative Mentor portal, including the email communications you will receive permitting you access,
  • How you login to the portal,
  • How to navigate and use the portal,
  • Where to find a young person’s referral information,
  • How to add in your Action Record and session details,
  • How to add in your skills assessments,
  • How to amend any additions you have made.

There will be plenty of time for questions and we will also be providing a How-To document for you to use following this.

We’ve got some frequently asked questions below, but if you have any further questions at this point, please email Emily York

Creative Mentors will be reimbursed for their time, at £30.00 per hour to attend. To claim this, you must submit an invoice to The Mighty Creatives after attendance.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will the new portal be launched?

The new portal is already live. Current contracts will still be using the old paperwork system. Any new contracts assigned from the final training date (12th October) will be using the new Creative Mentor Portal.

  • Do I have to use the new portal?

Yes. All Creative Mentors on new contracts from 12th October will be on the new portal. We recognise there will be a cross-over period, but it’s important that all our information is stored in the same safe and secure place. We have developed this off the back of feedback from Creative Mentors and we need all Creative Mentors to use it. It simplifies the process greatly, for ourselves at The Mighty Creatives, but more importantly for Creative Mentors too.

  • Where do I go to for support?

If something is not working or you are unsure, contact the Creative Mentoring team by emailing

  • Will there be a recording of the session?

Yes, there will be. However, we will ask you to attend in-person if you can.
