This course focuses on the use of planning within mentoring programmes. In this context, planning is more of a thought process and approach rather than an activity that requires post it notes and gantt charts.
During the course, you are going to meet Geoff and Mel, who meet through a mentoring programme that does not get off to the best start. Different expectations of the programme and interpretations of mentoring itself lead to important lessons being learned by both parties that lead to an interesting and surprising outcome.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Describe the benefit of clarifying definitions, expectations and outcomes of mentoring programmes from the outset
- Organise content within mentoring programmes and individual meetings
- Apply learning from the course to plan successful remote mentoring sessions
