Hello, and welcome to our website. It’s fantastic seeing you here. Thank you very much for visiting. I’m guessing you’re here because you’re interested in finding out a bit more about how you can support apprentices to get the most out of them, so I encourage you to look through the following few pages and have a look at the impact of some of the courses that we offer. The main course that we offer is the National Apprentice Mentoring Qualification. If you go through to that page on the website, you’ll see some video testimonials from some of the people that we’ve trained so that you can hear first-hand about the impact that that will have on their apprentices.

Please, if you have any questions, please do drop us a line. Get in contact by phoning us on 02381120010 or emailing us at hello@thementoringschool.com – my team will be glad to help.

So how can The Mentoring School help us with our apprentices?

We recognise that tutors and assessors only spend a short amount of time with apprentices, however many apprentices need additional employability, life or personal skills development.

At the same time, the implementation of the apprenticeship levy means that employers are looking at offering a lot more apprenticeships.

So, that’s where we come in, we help employers to know the things they need to do as employers, and also teach them the psychology of mentoring in order to maximise the potential for that apprenticeship throughout their whole course with the award-winning National Apprentice Mentoring Qualification.

The course that completes the Apprentice Learning Triangle:

What are the benefits for us?

We help employers and training providers to:

  • brief their staff about their duties
  • increase the support for their apprentices
  • get the final 20% training payment on completion
  • have an improved experience for your apprentices
  • develop a more involved workforce
  • have an amazing value-added to really show off to others (and inspectors)!

How is the course delivered?

There are three ways we planned to deliver the course: by eLearning, in-person for groups of colleagues and through training licenced trainers.

We knew we had an amazing produce by the huge amount of interest when we went to market, we went from a forecast of 50 partner organisations delivering this course, to somewhere over 500!

The team had worked with some universities to get the reflective assignment people complete in order to gain the qualification recognised as prior learning for some courses. We looked at the options for accreditation and decided to begin the registration process with OfQual ourselves.

How did this come about?

We began working with schools and colleges, delivering consultancy and mentoring courses for social and emotional difficulties, work readiness or academic skills. We began to receive enquiries from employers asking us about how they could best support apprentices they were struggling to support. We helped them and in the process it became clear that many employers do not always understand the different expectations from those of an employee, why they experience so many difficulties and hurdles when it comes to integrating them and teaching them the skills they need to perform their jobs.

Even worse, when we surveyed apprentices to find out their view, nearly half said they felt unsupported in their workplace and over 85% said they felt employers needed training in how to support apprentices. This surprising data was backed up by our conversations with training providers, who also felt that this identified a gap that was apparent on the times they saw placement failures.

So by working with some apprentices, some employers and training providers, we set about adapting our mentoring courses to help employers mentor apprentices. We had already planned to develop workplace mentoring courses and so we wrote that course and also the National Apprentice Mentoring Qualification.
