What is Mentoring? Launch Event
A really useful and informative session. It helped me understand more about how to become a mentor and what skills you need.

Different people have very different ideas about what mentoring is. Unrealistic expectations about what mentoring can achieve can undermine its effectiveness. Confusion about roles and responsibilities can lead to disappointment and dissatisfaction.
Our What is Mentoring? Event will help prospective mentors and mentees understand what mentoring involves. They will discover how it can benefit them and how it can add value to the organisation.
An interactive session to attract interested colleagues (mentors and mentees) to the Programme. It will provide an overview of the structure and expected benefits, and to answer questions.
As a result of this session, prospective mentors and mentees will:
- Be clear on what mentoring is/involves
- Identify the benefits to them of being involved in a mentoring relationship
- Get a taster of those benefits through practical experience
What do we cover?
