Mentorship and Coaching Course
This course is intended to define the competencies of those who work with learners after training/facilitation, and possibly assessment, has happened. This course is intended to deal with that kind of training/facilitation that moves a person from a relatively generic skill in their area of learning, to direct application within a particular context or work environment.
This course is intended for a range of people, including managers, supervisors, mentors, operators who may not be ETD specialists, but who know the job/application, and are able to help people move from a generic skill to a particular application within the workplace.
This course is not meant to be just about inducting a person into their job, rather, it is about actual training in the particular application after a person has already developed the core skills involved.
