Mentoring and befriending events

Our highly rated training courses and workshops have been developed in order to help increase the skills and knowledge of those involved in mentoring, peer mentoring and befriending. Our core courses cover the essentials of setting up and managing a mentoring/peer mentoring or befriending project and we also offer training in mentoring and befriending skills, coaching skills, and support and supervision skills for managers.

Courses are delivered by trainers who have real practical experience and expertise in the subject to ensure you gain most value from attending.

How do you ensure that your mentoring or befriending service is developed in line with good practice? Based on our Approved Provider Standard (APS), NCVO's specialist quality standard for mentoring or befriending projects, this 2 day course will give you practical guidance on how to set up and manage a safe and effective mentoring/peer mentoring or befriending programme.
