People Skills - Bridge the Gap

Venue: Broomfield Hall

Course Overview

How can you provide apprentices with empowering mentoring support
so that they are an asset to their organisation from day one? This
workshop enables you to strengthen your profile as an inspirational role
model and your ability to set objectives, encourage reflective practices
and offer both task-related and emotional support.
Based on the ethos that a strong role model can deliver a positive
and successful mentoring relationship, Bridge the Gap equips employers and staff members with knowledge of how to interact with ‘millennial’ apprentices in a supportive and motivational way. It will help you achieve a positive apprenticeship experience for both parties and establish a two-way collaborative approach to the mentoring relationship.
