Workshop Details

A successful mentoring programme depends on a good model. It also depends on mentors and mentees having a set of mentoring skills and strategies to effectively evaluate the outcomes of mentoring. This workshop will cover mentoring principles and practices and a range of practical mentoring skills. This is a full-day workshop for people wanting a theoretical base for mentoring and practice a range of skills associated with effective mentoring.

Who should attend? 

 Any individuals or groups intending to start or refine an existing mentoring scheme. Suitable for mentors or mentees and a combination of both.

About the facilitator: 

Dr Lesley Petersen has over twenty-five years’ experience in the training and development field, specifically building her expertise in the areas of mentoring and evaluation research. She completed her PhD in 2011 which investigated the influence of mentoring on academic teaching practice and resulted in the development of an integrated model for mentoring as a mechanism for supporting professional development and enhancing leadership capabilities across an organisation.

Lesley’s passion for mentoring has led her to engage in local and nationally-funded research to continue exploring the impact of mentoring at an individual and organisational level. She uses her expertise to assist organisations with implementing systems to help develop staff to reach their full potential.
