What skills and experience do I need?

  • We all use mentoring skills in our everyday relationships, and being able to listen in a non judgemental fashion is essential.
  • You also need to be encouraging, supportive and positive, and to want to help people who may have significant issues.
  • The process may not always run smoothly, so you need to be determined, reliable and able to work within agreed boundaries.
  • You will receive comprehensive training which tells you everything you need to know, and gives you the opportunity to practice your mentoring skills.
  • You will require an enhanced level CRB check before you can start working as a mentor.
