This is a busy and interactive day with a variety of group activities and discussions about how we mentor, and the roles and skills required to adequately support others.
Each individual session has its own objectives and outcomes. These begin by looking at what is meant by mentoring, mentoring within organisations, identifying learning styles and how to effectively coach and motivate others.
Further development of your role is explored in establishing and maintaining professional relationships with learners, dealing with difficult situations and supporting learners with agreed plans, encouragement and reflection.
We will look at the various monitoring tools available to support the learner, the importance of keeping records and portfolio development.
At the end of the day you will complete an action plan to ensure that you have the opportunity to implement ideas for improving mentoring in your workplace.
This programme consists of a pre-course work workbook, case studies, activities and learning through the study day with a mentor workbook to support you in your development as a mentor, and post-course work.
This study day is essential for anyone wishing to develop their skills and mentor in their workplace.
