In partnership with mentoring experts, Clutterbuck Associates, we developed an interactive training and e-learning platform where mentees and mentors can build the foundation for successful mentoring relationships.
Through videos, podcasts, summary documents and interviews, the training covers the latest best practices in cross-cultural mentoring, how to use our interactive platform and getting started. It ensures that all mentors and mentees enter the programme with the same background knowledge while also offering an opportunity
to build and refine skills that are useful in the wider professional and
business worlds. For those who are new to the internet or would like
to build their digital literacy, we offer
training on using key online tools.
All participants complete our training process, which takes less than
