About this Event

In this engaging and experiential masterclass, Lis Merrick will consider how to design and develop a mentoring approach within an organisation. She will explore the different models, dynamics and uses of mentoring globally and the key steps to create a really robust and effective programme.

Masterclass Outline

The masterclass will begin by examining how the mentoring approach in organisations differs due to culture and context and understand the different uses of mentoring in formal programmes.

The participants will then work in pairs or small groups on the design of some ‘real’ programmes using these key steps to mentoring programme design:

  1. The rationale for the programme
  2. Influencing stakeholders
  3. Clear recruitment strategy
  4. Communications and marketing
  5. Preparing the participants
  6. Matching process
  7. Supporting the programme
  8. Review and evaluation
  9. The role of the mentoring co-ordinator/manager

Lis will tailor the design part of the masterclass to the specific needs of the participants attending. There will be an opportunity to work on your own programme design, or to use the masterclass to refresh an existing programme you are running.

Aims and Objectives

The masterclass will ensure the participants understand:

  • The different models and dynamics of mentoring
  • How to use mentoring to support different OD and L&D interventions
  • How to use a step approach to design an effective programme using the latest good practice and research in mentoring
  • The short cuts and quick wins to robust programme set up
  • The challenges and barriers in programme design and how to overcome them.

The masterclass also provides an opportunity for participants to share knowledge and experiences in developing mentoring programmes.

Please come with ideas of possible programmes you would like to design or information about an existing programme you would like to review and revitalise.
