The Learning Mentor Apprenticeships provide practical, technical and/or pastoral support and guidance. Learning Mentors collaborate closely with colleagues, other Education and Training professionals and employers to meet learners’ development needs towards achieving their potential. A Learning Mentor Apprentice supports the development of their learner’s knowledge, skills and behaviours, throughout their learning programme, particularly around the application of theoretical knowledge within practical working environments.
The aim of the Learning Mentor Apprenticeship is to gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours to support learners of all ages, and all levels, to develop within a new work role. These learners may be apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants to new CEOs) in the workplace and also in any vocational learning environment. Mentoring takes place on a one-to-one basis, or in small groups within the workplace.
