Mentor
Training

Confident and effective mentors are those who have been given the opportunity to become familiar with and practice the necessary skills in a supportive learning environment.


I develop customized mentor training programmes in order to directly meet the needs of participants in preparing for their mentoring relationship. Practical exercises and scenarios form integral and meaningful aspects of the training programme, and complement a comprehensive introduction to key aspects and skills related to a mentoring role.

I offer a comprehensive one-day training workshop which can be customized to suit a shorter or longer session as needed.

Cost

One-day mentor training workshop: €1390.00

Half-day mentor training workshop: €850.00

Up to fifteen participants may be included. The cost includes a training booklet and resources for mentors to help them in their role.

Why not offer training for your mentees too? This will ensure that all participants are aware of each others' role in the mentoring partnership, as well as enabling mentees to make the most of the opportunity to be mentored.

Contact info@peermentoringresources.ie for more information.

Peer Mentoring Resources was very helpful in working with us to bring together all of our ideas around implementing a peer support programme and putting shape onto it.  The training delivered to our peer volunteers was very well prepared and professionally delivered. 

Katharine went out of her way to understand the specific issues for our client group which ensured that the training delivered was relevant and meaningful and not just a tick box exercise.
