A one day workshop provided on behalf of CILIPS and FREE to members of CILIP. Closing date for applications 17th April.

The purpose of this course is to provide participants with a background to mentoring and a basic framework for conducting mentoring both long and short term.  The focus of the event is to enable participants to develop effectively as mentors in the context of the CILIP professional development scheme. Mentoring is a highly useful personal attribute and transferable skill to learn.

Mentor Training is a requisite for becoming a CILIP Mentor and this course is suitable for all CILIP members who have recently registered as CILIP mentors or are thinking of registering. Come along and find out more about the mentoring scheme.

By the end of the day participants will:

  • Have an awareness of the function of mentoring in the CILIP CPD process
  • Have had the opportunity to explore and experience mentoring
  • Be able to make an assessment of their capability as mentors and identify their development needs in this area

The morning session will focus on generic mentoring skills whilst the afternoon will focus on the CILIP regulations.

Members who have previously attended a course on mentoring skills may attend the afternoon only (14.00-16.30) to join in with updated elements relating to the CILIP scheme. Please let us know if you plan to come for the afternoon session only – admin@cilips.org.uk.
