How to be a mentor, how to be mentored, and how to set up mentoring structures in your organisation

About the course: How to be a mentor

Mentoring – in pairs or sometimes in small groups - enables us to be properly heard; to see difficulties in new ways; to find solutions to dilemmas and problems; to plan and be usefully encouraged as we create aims and objectives and take steps to fulfil them.
We have been both teaching mentoring skills and setting up mentoring structures in organisations for the past 16 years, to very positive effect.

What you will learn

  • What mentoring is 

  • A variety of mentoring structures (mentor-mentee, co- mentoring and mentoring groups) from which you can decide what works best for you 

  • Skills for successful mentoring 

  • Practical considerations (Where? How long for? How to start? How to end?) 

  • Confidentiality issues 

  • Trouble-shooting: what to avoid for successful mentoring

Are courses tailored to individual needs?

Absolutely. This course has been delivered in the past, and is designed to give you a flavour of what we can offer you. All courses are refined to meet each client’s requirements.

Through discussion (email, phone or zoom) we will get a clear sense of the needs of the organisation/the participants and then design a course specifically to respond to these.

We will always include clear ‘learning outcomes’ in the final version of courses we construct with and for you.

Course duration

The length of courses will vary according to what you need, your aspirations and your time constraints.

How are courses delivered?

All teaching and learning is fully immersive: people learn much more when they are actively engaged. Each course includes individual, pair and group work as well as directed learning. All participants are welcome to email questions after the event, and follow-ups (often very useful) are always offered.

What are the costs?

The cost of each course will vary, and will be agreed with you once a full course outline has been produced.

As a rough guide, we charge around £800 per day, to include preparation, delivery, response to post-course questions and distribution of course materials.

Half days are pro-rata.

Is teaching remote or in-person?

Teaching and learning is, wherever possible, face to face. This improves both the quality and quantity of learning, as well as being more enjoyable.

Learning via zoom can be arranged if practical constraints make face to face impossible.
