This course focuses on the essential features of mentoring programmes that are supported by evidence to deliver the best outcomes.
The case study follows Miriam who is a volunteer mentor within a school setting. In each section, you are faced with a specific set of challenges that will test your mentoring knowledge when you provide guidance and support to Miriam in the early stages of her mentoring journey. You will need to review a range of articles and websites that we have provided so that you give Miriam the most appropriate advice. These resources are accessed using the “Materials” tab. You will see this tab above the scenario details and also above the assessment questions.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Explain key differences between various types of mentoring
- Describe success factors for effective mentoring that should be used to inform programmes and sessions
- Evaluate how mentoring is used in different settings and the related beneficiaries within each
