mentoring solution to replace a training event


The main rollout of some major training for our organisation is coming to an end and we want to replace it with a package that can be used in the units to train any new entrants in the future. We already have a number of e-learning modules on this topic and want to bind these together with other exercises to create a "mentors" pack which can be used by experienced staff to train the new ones. We also want to offer some kind of externally recognised qualification to these staff that will act as mentors to ensure that they all meet a standard and as a bit of a carrot for doing this. Does anyone have any experience of this and know of any organisations that would provide such a programme? Also any advice on how to create a package for use on a unit blended in with e-learning would be very greatfully recieved

  1. The right solution
    First of all, I think your approach sounds spot on.Given that, there are two elements to the query that I would like to advise you on, creating a package to deliver the programme to new entrants, and training and accrediting the mentors.
    Taking the latter first, the Institute of Leadership and Management has a qualification called the ILM Level 4 Diploma in Management Coaching and Mentoring that was designed specifically for this kind of situation (I know, I led the development team!). You can deliver it yourself or through an existing accredited centre (visit to find a centre or get in touch and I will help you).
    On the other issue, you need to think carefully about what you are trying to do – if the bulk of the training is contained within the e-learning then it shouldn’t be too difficult, but if there is a more substantial amount of learning needed (especially if there is a lot of practical work alongside the e-learning) you might consider getting a proper flexible training package produced by an expert. This is not expensive and if you have already committed substantial sums to training people you may well find that the amount is tiny compared to that. Again get in touch if you want more info.

  2. Have done similar things
    Hi Craig

    Part of our business specialises in this type of roll out and has an impressive list of corporate clients we have done similar exercises for.

    If you are still looking let me know, and I can give you access to material to look at to see other examples.
