Training for mentors

All apprentices have a supervisor and a mentor. Becoming a supervisor or mentor can be a rewarding experience for members of your staff on both a personal and a professional level.

A one day training session for mentors and supervisors is available and organised by the Apprenticeships Manager. Delivered at locations around the university by external professional trainers, it is available at least termly and at minimal cost. If someone in your team has been identified as a potential supervisor and/or mentor they are encouraged to take this course. Please contact the University Apprenticeships Manager for further details.

Basic information about the mentoring role can be found in the following document, but any staff who have the responsibility of supervising and mentoring an apprentice is strongly encouraged to attend the training mentioned above.
