The Mentoring Programme


Mentoring relationships are unique alliances shaped by a particular mentor’s talents and resources, and by a mentee’s needs and abilities.
Mentoring is a one-to-one relationship over a period of time between the company employee (mentor) and a client on a work placement, trial or experience, apprenticeship, volunteering opportunity or new employment (mentee), which provides consistent support, guidance and practical help as the mentee goes through the initial period with the company.

To find out more about the Mentoring Scheme and the benefits to you and your organisation; please open the Mentoring Leaflet.

Upcoming Mentoring Courses


Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the upcoming courses have been suspended. However, it is hoped that the course planned for Wednesday 11 November 2020 will go ahead. Please reserve your place and we will keep you updated nearer the time.
