By the end of the day participants will:

  • Have an awareness of the function of mentoring in the CILIP CPD
  • process
  • Have had the opportunity to explore and experience mentoring
  • Be able to make an assessment of their capability as mentors and identify their development needs in this area

The morning session will focus on generic mentoring skills whilst the afternoon will focus on the CILIP regulations. 

Members who have previously attended a course on mentoring skills may attend the afternoon only (14.00-16.30) to join in the elements relating to the CILIP scheme.
