Why this apprenticeship?

Mentoring takes place in all parts of the Education and Training Sector and staff-development context.

Within the Learning and Skills Mentor apprenticeship, you could be supporting learners of all ages and all levels to develop within a new work role.

These learners may be apprentices themselves, trainees, or new recruits.

This might be the first steps towards your aspirations to be a leader/manager or to work within education or training.

You will have sector specific experience and qualifications, which you will use to guide and advise those who are less experienced and are new to a work role.

The Learning and Skills Mentor is therefore a ‘dual professional’, having both up-to-date knowledge and skills in a specialist area and the generic skills necessary to develop, support, and advice others.

If you enjoy motivating others, are aspirational, and have a passion for learning and sharing your knowledge, this apprenticeship could be for you.
