Train the Mentor

A tailor-made curriculum promoting the mindset of mentoring and empowering mentors.

In order to promote the mindset of mentoring and make the added value of mentors accessible, this four-month-long Train the Mentor curriculum has been developed. During several workshops, potential future mentors are exposed to a variety of tools and techniques that are conducive for effective mentoring relationships.

 

The curriculum includes a total of six half-day workshops. The content focusses on the role and necessary tools of a mentor, communication techniques, mediation, creation of project plans, behavioural psychology, skills and competency mapping, etc. Furthermore, high-performing, interested, and qualifying participants can be selected to join other programmes as a mentor. The multiplier effect of the Train the Mentor programme can be guaranteed by allowing graduates – depending on their location and availability – to apply their newly-acquired skills.
