  • Review different mentoring models and methods available

Roles and skills required by a mentor

The mentoring module is aimed at anybody who would like to become a work-based mentor or introduce a mentoring programme to their organisation.

Depending on your level of qualification or experience, the assessment will vary slightly. For example, at level 4, this is equivalent to the first year of a University degree, the assessment is as follows:

Developing the mentoring programme

1,400 words

Reflective journal

1,400 words

Observed mentoring session

20 minutes

This goes up to the maximum word count of 2,100 words at the degree and postgraduates levels. We will discuss with you which level will be best for your needs and circumstances.

No entry requirements

There are no additional costs to this course.

You will be required to attend two teaching days at the Carmarthen Campus. These days will provide you with a secure foundation to begin your study. Throughout this module you will be supported by a Tutor. This support can either be face-to-face, via telephone, email or Skype – or a mix of all these.
