Practice is the hardest part of learning, and training is the essence of transformation.



Mentoring works in all settings, people, situations and purposes. In the workplace it is both a strategic intervention and an excellent support mechanism; in an academic setting it may serve the purpose of helping students to reduce academic stress and of encouraging quality teaching and research.


A new form of mentoring is evolving that is well suited to our contemporary society and that is mentoring in the community. It is one of the fastest growing social movements of our time as there are millions of volunteers the world over making themselves available to help others for a variety of reasons. 


Whether you are implementing a formal or informal mentoring programme, training your mentors and inducting your mentees is highly advisable. An effective mentoring relationship is one where both mentors and mentees have the core skills and the right kind of values to back them up.

A typical day focuses on the tools needed to act as mentors, primarily in the workplace but also in the community and in a variety of other situations. The workshop encourages participants to use mentoring as a learning, development and performance-raising tool and to use a range of techniques to get the best out of the people they mentor. Plenty of role playing opportunities, group discussions and exercises are provided to ensure participants are confident in using mentoring skills, tools and techniques by the time they leave the workshop.  


We can also provide half day Mentor Training focusing on the theory and less on the practice.  The training can be ILM accredited (Enquire for more information).

Being a good mentee is critical in order to make the most out of the relationship; to be focused on the objectives and to have realistic expectations. This workshop aims to bridge the gap and to provide useful guidelines for anyone preparing for a mentoring relationship, whether formal or informal.


The dynamic of every mentoring relationship is different as each operates in a different context, influencing the behaviour of mentor / mentee, the process and ultimately the outcome. However, the relationship is about mutual learning and sharing and the responsibility for learning rests firmly with the mentee.
