In the United Kingdom (UK), a thriving computer science education (CSE) community of practice is evolving, supported by national and international professional body/learned society specialist interest groups, and being developed through a number of CSE research and practice conferences. A key group within this emerging community of practice are early career academics who are required to overcoming significant obstacles in the early stages of their academic career, from developing an independent research career, delivering high quality learning and teaching, continuing their own professional development, alongside wider academic service commitments. Institutional-level, but generally subject-agnostic, support for early career colleagues in the UK is supplemented by nationwide developmental sessions and initiatives such as journal clubs. This poster reports on a pilot scheme to support early career CS academics through a mentoring scheme consisting of cross-institutional mentoring from experienced academics as well as buddying groups of similar career stage colleagues.
