Effective Mentoring

Mentoring supports an individual or team’s learning, development and performance.   It is a successful developmental technique for organisations to use to support individuals to reach their full potential by offering them access to regular and contracted support from another person at work.

The training will focus on the skills, knowledge, tools and techniques to mentor effectively in practice within the NHS.

The material and practical exercises cover the following areas in order to build confidence in mentoring others within the workplace.


  • Understanding what mentoring is (and what it is not)
  • Understanding the context for mentoring and explore the role and responsibilities of the mentor
  • Developing your own mentoring skills
  • Using process, logs and paperwork to help bring focus to our mentoring
  • Using tools and techniques to creatively support and mentor
  • To practice mentoring skills and techniques in a range of circumstances

PLEASE NOTE There will be a half day follow up CPD session on the 4th February 2020 Please hold both dates in your diary.
