Mentoring is essentially about helping people to develop more effectively. It is a relationship designed to build confidence and support the mentee so they are able to take control of their own development and work. Mentoring is not the same as training, teaching or coaching, and a mentor doesn’t need to be a qualified trainer or an expert in the role the mentee carries out. They need to be able to listen and ask questions that will challenge the mentee to identify the course of action they need to take about their own development.
Mentoring can be used for a wide variety of situations and different points in someone’s working life for example:
• Induction for a new starter.
• Individuals working towards promotion.
• Staff who have changed roles in the department or across the organization.
• Staff on structured learning program
• Changes to job roles for example following a restructure.
• Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
