Coaching and mentoring training for on-programme tutors and assessors

Developments in apprenticeships have incredibly changed the landscape for those people who support apprentices throughout their course.  The focus of their work is far more than just a visiting assessor and the pressure is to be able to coach and mentor them to ensure they complete their course.

Looking at an apprentice’s work to help them towards their End Point Assessment, is very different than checking that the apprentice has done the work and marking the unit criteria off.

Combine this with the latest understanding of the neuro-science behind how to motivate and engage apprentices, the new theories affecting learning styles and also the changes to the brain during the teenage years, there is a lot for on-programme staff to consider.

Even staff who have been in the sector for years, need to hear what we have to tell them!

The multi-award-winning Mentoring School are proud to announce the launch of a course for those working as assessors or tutors supporting an apprentice through their course.
