E-Learning Course Content:
What’s the course about?
Mentoring, in a business sense, is a relationship between two people with the goal of professional and personal development. The mentor is usually an experienced individual who shares knowledge, experience, and advice with a less experienced person – the mentee.
There are many similarities between coaching and mentoring, but perhaps one of the main differences is that a mentor is often an expert, or at least highly experienced, in the area they are mentoring in, whereas a coach needn’t be.
Some mentors focus on helping their mentees develop their career path by giving advice on things like how to progress ‘up the ladder’. Others see their role as supporting the mentee as a person and focusing on how they can help them develop as individuals. There’s a great deal of variety in mentoring situations and the approaches mentors use. Some can be quite challenging and require the mentor to adapt to the situation and be flexible.
This mentoring e-learning course sets out to provide your learners with a wide understanding of the role of mentoring as well as a key set of tools that they can transfer to the workplace.
Although this e-learning course is predominantly aimed at the mentor, it is equally useful for mentee and will give both an understanding of what is expected of them. The e-learning will ensure the learners have everything they need to ensure they establish effective mentoring relationships.
