If you are interested in working as a mentor, we offer the Mentoring Award at Level 1. This is a short course that will allow you to develop the practical skills needed for the role. The course is a confidence booster if you have been out of education for some time. Not only will you gain skills that you can use with your own family, but you will have the experience of learning in an adult environment. This introductory award enables students to understand the role of a mentor and to become aware of the skills needed to become an effective mentor such as the role of a mentor; effective communication and listening skills and confidentiality.
