Learning Mentor for Apprentices

Mentoring is an established development strategy both in the workplace and in a learning context.  This makes the role of Learning Mentor ideally placed to support apprentices, developing their knowledge, skills and behaviours, in the workplace.

Learning Mentors use their occupational knowledge and competence to guide and advise those who are less experienced through applying theoretical learning in practical work environments.  Learning Mentors provide practical, technical and pastoral support, liaising closely with managers, training professionals and HR.

Our 9-hour training programme covers:

  • Practical application of mentoring processes/models
  • Motivating and inspiring apprentices
  • Working within professional and ethical boundaries
  • Understanding the role of supervision in mentoring practice
  • Advising, guiding and supervising apprentices to acquire the maximum benefit from their development programme
  • Liaising with training providers and workplace colleagues to plan and implement structured and meaningful learning and work-experience for apprentices
  • Approaches for giving feedback to apprentices
  • Identifying and referring issues relevant to the apprentice’s progress and wellbeing
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication, listening skills, ability to show empathy, questioning skills, non-judgemental approach, goal or target setting, summarising, advising and guiding, demonstrating positive behaviours and role modelling

The 9-hours are delivered across three 3-hour webinars.
