Mentoring & Supervising Apprentices
Ali Bramall

Overview

A one day workshop focussing on the non-technical skills required by those who mentor or supervise apprentices as part of their work. It offers a great opportunity to look at how you and your company currently manage the process of mentoring and what the possibilities are for the future.

You will be focusing on the real issues you have at work and finding ways to resolve them through learning different approaches and skills. As you'll be working alongside people from different companies, you'll gain fresh perspectives of how to resolve situations as well as hearing how other businesses function.
