Who is the course for?
Learning Mentors support learners of all ages, and all levels, to develop within a new work role. These learners may be, for example, apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants, to new CEOs) in the workplace, or in any vocational learning environment.
Apprentices will be assigned a development coach who will guide them through the course using a mixture of tutorials, workshops, online materials and self-study.
Workshops will take place online with other apprentices from different organisations to give apprentices the opportunity to share best practice and knowledge. Closed cohorts can also be delivered in person if required.
This apprenticeship will involve several hours of mentoring practice observations therefore apprentices need to be in this mentoring role.
