Feedback From Our Mentoring An Apprentice Workshops

By Sam Moore

Dynamic Training has been hosting online workshops for line managers to help support apprentices during their apprenticeship programme. These online workshops have been a great success, with line managrs feeling they are a massive help to them. In this article, we will take a look at the feedback we have recieved. 

This blog post is also the first in our series around Mentoring In The Workplace. To see more blog posts around this subject, please keep an eye on our blog and follow us on LinedIn and Facebook.


What Are The Mentoring An Apprentice Workshops?

Assigning a workplace mentor is a powerful tool which can ensure learners settle into their role quickly and thrive in the workplace. Mentoring is a highly valuable development process and at its core, it's the relationship between the mentor and the mentee where the development of the learner is the key focus.

For line managers and nominated mentors, we offer a complimentary one-time Mentoring Your Apprentice workshop, available on a monthly rotation. The workshop will help line managers and mentors develop the skills needed to successfully support an apprentice, consider how to implement an apprenticeship mentoring programme in an organisation, conduct mentoring sessions using proven models and techniques, review progress, and form working relationships.


What Have Those Who Have Taken Part In The Training Had To Say?

All those who took part in the workshops were asked for their thoughts so that we can continue to improve the training. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, with a lot of great feedback about how this training will aid line managers in supporting and mentoring their apprentices.

Lets take a look at some of the feedback we received!
