Mentoring is used more and more often to support individuals achieve their goals in many areas of life. As a mentor the course will develop your ability to establish rapport, develop listening skills and the ability to pick up and respond to issues raised by your mentee. The course is highly practical and interactive to encourage you to develop your reflection and to evaluate your mentoring practice.

Coursework and Assessment
To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved.
The assessment for this course is a Reflective Journal.
The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
