New Course Date: Mentor Training Guidance for Mentoring Coordinators Training Course

The aim of this one day 'Mentor Training Guidance for Coordinators' course is to give organisations running mentoring programmes the skills and materials they will need to train their mentors.  The course will take place in Glasgow on Wednesday the 17th of October 2018.

The course will enable mentoring coordinators to:

  • Explain what good mentoring training should include
  • Understand key learning theories and practices and how these contribute to the delivery of quality training
  • Design a mentor training programme using a session plan template
  • Have access to and employ a range of mentor training tools, activities and resources
  • Review and evaluate a training programme for mentors

Course participants will be provided with a mentor training pack. This mentor training pack is presented in two sections.  Section one is for trainers and provides information, guidance and the materials required to deliver the mentor training course.  Section two is for participants and provides the documents and handouts that are given to prospective mentors attending the mentor training course.

The Coordinator can use and adapt the pack to suit the needs of prospective mentors, the needs of the organisation and to suit their own personal style as a trainer. The aim should be for coordinators to make the course their own. The course programme has been divided into four parts for flexibility of delivery. It can be run as a two-day course, as two one-day courses, or four-half day courses. The format chosen for delivery will depend on a number of factors including availability of mentors or of staff to deliver the training or venue availability.  The complete Mentor Training pack will be available electronically so coordinators will have the course materials electronically for printing and, where appropriate, insert information that is specific to the coordinator's organisation.

The cost of one participant place is £350.00 and this fee covers the days training; skilled, experienced, professional trainers; a printed training pack, and electronic access to the training pack.

Coordinators who have already completed our Professional Certficate in Coordinating Mentoring Programmes training course can attend this course for the discounted rate of £250.00
