We have designed this programme for managers and experienced engineers working with mentees or supporting professional registration applicants.
Providing opportunities for new engineers to develop capabilities and learn from senior colleagues is vital in creating an environment that is both engaging and motivating. This requires high-quality, effective mentoring relationships that support engineers on their journey from new starters to independent professionals taking ownership for their on-going development.
We have tailored this blended learning programme to help you develop your mentoring skills and recognise how you can best use your experience and knowledge in supporting the development of others.
You will gain clarity of how to set up and maintain an effective mentoring relationship, develop effective mentoring skills and learn to recognise some barriers to great mentoring.
