UK Ambassador for spa mentorship programme appointed

Helena Field, General Manager of the UK Spa Association and Director, and Founder of Spa Pulse, has been appointed UK Ambassador for the Global Mentorship Programme.

An initiative of the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), the Global Mentorship Program will address the issue of staff in the spa industry, as a response to the 2012 GWI study 'Spa Management Workforce and Education: Addressing Market Gaps'.

The study showed a gap between expansive job opportunities and the lack of qualified candidates.Helena and a team of country Ambassadors from across the globe will appoint mentors who will share their industry knowledge to spa, wellness and hospitality professionals via the Global Mentorship Program. Ideally a Mentorship relationship lasts between three and six months, with a minimum of one 60-minute call between Mentor-Mentee every two weeks.

The programme is supported by French skin care brand Biologique Recherche, along with Gharieni, Above Digital/SpaGenie, Altearah Bio, and Tip Touch to make this programme available to mentees free of charge.
