Learning mentor

“A learning mentor supports learners of all ages and all levels to develop within a new work role”

A learning mentor supports learners of all ages and all levels to develop within a new work role. These learners may be, for example, apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants, to new CEOs) in the workplace, or in any vocational learning environment. As an apprentice, you’ll develop sector-specific experience and qualifications, which you’ll use to guide and advise those who are less experienced and new to a work role. The learning mentor is therefore a ‘dual professional’ having both up-to-date knowledge and skills in a specialist vocational or subject area, together with the generic skills necessary to support learners. You’ll support the development of learners’ knowledge, skills and behaviour, throughout their programme, particularly in applying theoretical learning in practical work environments. You’ll give practical, technical and pastoral support and guidance.
