Course description

This course will give you the basic knowledge to start your journey into mentoring.

Mentoring your peers in either a voluntary or work situation is different to leading or managing them, although you may take up a number of these roles.

This course will allow you to explore what mentoring is and how it can be used in a positive way. It is an excellent two-day short course that leads onto our Level 1 Award in Peer Mentoring and will give you an insight into whether mentoring is for you.

What can this course lead to?

Exploring Prejudice and Stereotypes.
