My training course tutor was great. They (the pronoun they preferred) pushed me and pulled me. They pushed me to experiment and speculate, to explore and question. They also pulled me back when my work became self-indulgent. They literally made me what I am today. And now I’m out here “in the real world”. My mentor here obviously does all the onboarding stuff so I know how the place works, how to connect to all the relevant systems. But they also do that extra ‘development’. Both my trainers were Intelligent, obviously, but very different programmes. Then again, I am too.
