Mentoring workshops

Designed specifically with the humanitarian sector in mind, this practical programme will enable participants to fully understand their role as a mentor. Participants will build self-awareness as well as their core mentoring skills, capabilities, and mindset to enable them to bring the most to their mentoring relationships.

Each of the programme’s three workshops will run on consecutive days and will comprise the following areas of focus:

  1. The foundations of mentoring (introduction to mentoring and fellow mentors, the role of the mentor, core skills)
  2. Starting for success (the mentoring process, build trust, coaching skills, do’s and dont’s)
  3. The building blocks (giving feedback, managing the unexpected, closing the mentoring relationship)

The programme is offered free-of-charge to the humanitarian community on the understanding that participants commit to attend all three days of workshops in full, complete any pre-work, and are available to join the Centre’s mentor pool that will act as a resource in support of future humanitarian learning opportunities.


The October 2022 mentoring workshop is now at capacity. Please email us to be placed on a waiting list.
