Our two day training and assessment course will equip course delegates to work with clients using core concepts of mentoring and coaching. The training is highly interactive and experiential.
This training allows each delegate to work in triads with an experienced facilitator to get real time supportive feedback to enhance their learning experience.
Each course is led by an experienced team of trainers and facilitators provided by GP-S, each holding various professional qualifications in mentoring, coaching and training.
Our GP-S training team are able to provide a safe space to support delegates to confidently and skilfully manage supportive conversations that stretch a client’s thinking and help them move forward towards their desired goals.
What's included in the course?
Pre course work
The course includes three hours of pre-course work for each delegate. This will include providing resources for delegates to determine their learning styles, access to two audio presentations led by GP-S trainers providing an overview of mentoring and coaching and access to a number of video simulations of the model of mentoring in action.
The first day is focused on learning new skills. It will give each delegates a chance to learn the model of coaching through a mixture of presentations, demonstrations, pairs work and open question sessions.
On the second day our trainers will be joined by facilitators to enable triad working for the majority of the day. Delegates will work in triads and play the role of mentor, client and observer. They will receive supportive feedback on how they manage each stage of the model of mentoring/coaching as a mentor by all in the triad. Facilitators will be assessing delegates on each stage which will form their final RAG rating and feedback.
Two weeks after the course, delegates will all receive supportive personalised feedback on their skills during and after the course, including a RAG rating if requested. Commissioners will also receive a report on the training. GP-S can support with next steps if requested, including additional training for Amber delegates or for areas who would like support from GP-S to set up a local mentoring service, GP-S will manage delegate welcome meetings, additional training and completing mentor agreements.
Who can benefit from the training?
Anyone who would like to develop their skills in mentoring and coaching. It would also be useful for areas wishing to set up a mentoring service as the course will allow you to train up mentors/coaches quickly without compromising on quality.
Courses must have a minimum number of four delegates and a maximum of 18 and we recommend a multiple of three to allow for triad working on the second day. If you’re an individual and would like to access the training, get in touch as single places are also available.
Do you provide admin support?
Yes, we can work with you to provide as much or as little admin support as you need.
We work with areas commissioning training to manage:
Collecting initial expression of interest forms
Providing 15 minute drop in “information and Q&A” sessions for interested parties
Managing delegate information
Providing course materials
Managing delegate queries about the course
Some of the above may incur an additional cost.
