The delivery approach adopted provides a good blend of academic study and practical application. All members of the delivery team have both strong teaching backgrounds and experienced in coaching and mentoring, enabling them to build mentor’s knowledge and skills. Both theoretical and practical assessment formats are used to ensure all learning outcomes can be effectively evidenced. The delivery team work hard to develop supportive learning environments focused on developing mentor’s ‘self-confidence’ and ‘self-concept’, both as mentors and independent Higher Education students. The apprenticeship provides apprentices with an opportunity to enhance their own professional growth and development. By engaging in practical mentoring activities, apprentices can reinforce their existing knowledge and expertise, develop their skills, and gain a broader understanding of mentoring within their own setting.
When not attending taught course, you will be required to organise and undertake mentoring sessions within the workplace. You will be expected to continue learning independently through self -study.
