This page contains a description of some of the mentoring and training work that I did while on placement at Motorola.
Mentoring was a significant part of my work at Motorola in the last third of my placement year. The Software department where I worked had a formal mentoring scheme for new starters, which involves each new starter being assigned to an experienced engineer to act as mentor.
Mentors are responsible for training the new starter in all aspects of the job. This includes familiarising them with the GSM architecture, the BSS Software system, the structure of the code and equipment in the lab.
The GSM system is complex, and it is the mentor's responsibility to help the new starter learn how it works. Where formal technical training is required, the mentor helps to identify the training needs and match these up with available courses.
I also developed and delivered a number of more general training sessions and presentations - one of which was made mandatory for all new Software Engineers in the Department.
In addition to formal mentoring and training responsibilities of experienced engineers, I was also responsible for training summer placement students working in the department on 8-week projects.
