TRAINING FOR MENTEES
This dynamic and interactive half-day course is aimed at helping mentees understand the mentoring process and how to get the maximum benefit from it.
Mentoring is often defined as a professional relationship based on mutual trust in which an experienced and respected person (the mentor) shares his/her knowledge and experience with a less experienced colleague (the mentee) in developing his/her knowledge, learning, work-based skills, well-being, personal and professional development.
