Mentoring workshops

The Centre is running a series of online mentoring workshops throughout 2022-23. Designed specifically with the humanitarian sector in mind, these practical workshops 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)
Upcoming mentoring workshops

The next available mentoring workshop is for people working on the regional Ukraine Crisis Response and will run online from January 25-27, 2023. This interactive and practical program runs over three consecutive half days from 0930-1400 Ukraine time each day. Attendance for all three sessions in full is required in order to obtain a certificate. 

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 as they support and engage with colleagues in this crisis context.

Please note we have now expanded the eligibility of this next workshop and we invite registrations from all people working in the humanitarian sector.

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.
