Staff Mentoring

Mentoring is a powerful way of learning a variety of personal and professional skills.

A mentor's role is to support and encourage the growth of the mentees sense of responsibility for their own learning and development.

This is facilitated through:

  • Career Management, helping to create opportunities for new learning opportunities which could help the mentees progress
  • Self Reliance, this helps the mentee to take responsibility for themselves, their careers and development
  • Support-listening, encouraging and helping mentees to develop self confidence
  • Action learning - helps the mentee to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding by sharing experiences


Please contact Denise Fieldhouse if you require any help or advice on mentoring or you would like to be a mentor or mentee.
