When you have completed this you will begin your mentoring journey! You will complete 3 hours of mentoring with an hour of supervision with your personal tutor to give you feedback on how you are doing. You will then write up your sessions in a diary format, which forms your second assignment.
When You Have Finished

ILM Level 3 Award in Effective Mentoring – These qualifications build up your body of knowledge and begin to professionalise your role as a mentor or coach. You will be able to confidently and effectively work as a coach or mentor in a large organisation, or simply to those around you!
