Getting responses to current provision at UN, hopefully will have identifed all of the schemes by next week. Spoke to the Head of UCEE, who is working on developing a clear understanding of what is meant by mentoring.
The first phase of the project is around data collection. We are in the process of gathering information from across the University to identify all mentor schemes and their training programmes. Once this has been completed, we will be able to identify the core mentor skills and map these with those identified in our previous research.
The aims and objectives of this project are:
- To identify existing mentor training provision across the institution
- To identify the core skills required across a range of mentoring programmes
- To create a set of online learning resources for core mentoring skills, that is re-useable for all schools
- To create an open access MOOC that is accessible to both student mentors and work based mentors.
