Aims & Objectives

Our Mentoring in the Workplace course is designed for people who wish to become an effective and inspirational mentor in the workplace as well as those who will be mentored (mentoree).

This 1-day course comes in two parts. The first session is for people wishing to become a mentor. You’ll learn about the role of a mentor and will work on developing the skills to enter and establish a new mentoring relationship; to the benefit to the mentee and the organisation.

The second session is for people who will be mentored. You’ll learn about the role of a mentoree and what is expected of you. You’ll also learn how to assess if the relationship is working and how to become a mentor yourself in future if desired.
