How does it work?
Many people benefit from having a mentor to support them in their personal and career development, and this programme will help you to maximise your ability to support and coach others to achieve. A mentor is an experienced and knowledgeable person who is committed to helping their colleagues to overcome barriers, recognise their skills and aptitudes and identify and achieve their goals. Mentors provide a safe space, practical and non-judgemental support and a route to achievement to help a colleague on their journey.

What people say?
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for your support and guidance throughout my
management course. I found our workshops hugely beneficial for both my management
development and personal development – I doubt I would have gone for a promotion
without it! The learnings from it have been invaluable and I have really appreciated your
wisdom and advice as well and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to have taught us”
“Great sessions with Alan, interactive and interesting!”
“A lot of thought has gone into ensuring we get the most out of the training and it supports
us in our development. It’s also been extremely helpful as I’ve transitioned into a new
management role. There is no comparison to my previous apprenticeship provider”
