This course follows on from our Introduction to Mentoring - Level 1 course 3rd - 5th October 2022.

Mentoring can be hugely rewarding, but a mentor is also in a position of responsibility.  This course will offer a chance to think carefully about how to manage that responsibility effectively. We will look at the policies and procedures of mentoring, exploring legal and ethical guidelines and referral processes to ensure that mentors are confident in setting boundaries in mentoring relationships. We will also consider how the mentoring relationship might be impacted by individual differences, including different responses to change, as well as thinking about the importance of reflective practice in mentoring. Learning about these issues will lead to the development of a plan for the use of mentoring skills in the workplace

This course is ideal if you are working, or looking for work, in a role that involves mentoring or coaching.

During this course we will:

  • Think about how and why mentoring can be useful and productive
  • Consider policies, procedures and guidelines as well as possible challenges barriers in the mentoring relationship
