Mentoring, appraisal, coaching and career counselling are some of the well-recognised tools for professional development. Most healthcare professionals acknowledge the need at some stage in their careers for support, advice, guidance, counselling or a ‘listening ear’. Mentoring can be all of these.

The best mentoring partnerships provide a positive learning experience for both mentor and mentee. Mentoring can be mutually beneficial to both parties.

Mentoring can make an important contribution to new recruits in the profession. It can have an equally important impact for senior, established professionals. The process can also help to motivate staff, improve job satisfaction and in turn provide clear benefits to the organisation as a whole.


Specifically, the course will provide an opportunity to:

  • Review and reflect on experiences of mentoring
  • Clarify the role and responsibilities of mentors
  • Examine a structure for mentoring meetings
  • Practice the skills of mentoring
  • Share concerns and issues for mentors
