The Mentoring School is devoted to raising standards in mentoring by putting in place syllabuses for different levels of mentoring, be it someone with an awareness, a practitioner, an advanced practitioner or those working at a higher level.

 

For years, anyone has been able to call themselves a mentor, there have been very few standards. Leadership and management organisations have encouraged people to view mentoring as a step down from coaching.
Founded in 2016, The Mentoring School has become the recognised name for mentoring training, both in the UK and internationally. Able to offer the delivery of a range of mentoring courses in different sectors, they also work with partner organisations to help them to deliver recognised mentor courses.

 

From 2018 they have been able to list certified mentors on the international public database, the Register of Mentors. This is administered by the International Mentor Network in order to be able to accredit all qualified or experienced mentors, not just those trained by The Mentoring School.

The underlying principles of mentoring are the same, regardless of the sector. For example, the structure of a supportive mentoring conversation is the same. This enables The Mentoring School to be able to provide courses in pastoral mentoring in many different fields.

 

Many mentors deliver technical mentoring – teaching someone less experienced the skills they require. Their work is incredibly valuable, however is only a small part of mentoring. Developing and nurturing the personal development of a whole person, helping them overcome the barriers they are facing based on relevant experience is a major part of the wider field of mentoring. This is known as pastoral mentoring.

 

Aside from teaching mentors to utilise these vital personal growth skills, The Mentoring School also offers courses in Unconscious Bias, mental health and more.
