Course Description

For new entrants, mentors support learners to settle into their role quickly and thrive in the workplace.

A mentor/coach is separate to a line manager and is someone who provides a support system for the apprentice.

A workplace mentor may:

• share their knowledge and experiences

• provide advice, guidance and feedback

• act as a sounding board for ideas and action plans

• offer encouragement and support

• celebrate the apprentice’s success

• identify development opportunities

• build an apprentice’s confidence, independence, and self-belief

• set goals

• support personal development and wellbeing

The mentor relationship provides additional support, guidance and pastoral care, which is removed from the apprentice's direct line management chain. Mentoring plays an important role in motivating apprentices to persevere with their training.

The aim of this workshop is to equip you with an understanding of apprenticeships and the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to undertake a mentoring role with an apprentice.
