Effective utilisation of mentoring is widely regarded as one of the most performance enhancing and individual supporting activities in the professional tool bag, whether assiting new team members, developing enhanced capabilities or resolving performance difficulties. Crucial to providing the best support to trainees of those newly in post, it is even more vital in supporting colleagues through challenges or difficulties. Our Advanced Mentoring programme is designed to provide a significantly enhanced ability in a wide variety of circumstances. Highly practical in nature, it utilises a robust framework but with advanced-level behavioural skills to match, all designed to take your mentoring ability to a whole new level. Packed with tools you can use straight out of the box.

Pricing Structure

Our Easyjet-style pricing means places start at £195 + VAT for the first 5 places, step to £230 + VAT for the next block and then revert to the standard price of £265 + VAT. It's not time-related, it's 'places available at' and so it pays to book swiftly to secure one of the lower price places.

This means that you get the best price available by booking early but it does require payment at the time of booking, as the place is attached to you and that denies someone else the chance. In the event study leave is declined, refunds are issued according to standard terms & conditions.
