Advanced Mentoring

The only Advanced Mentoring Level 4 Qualification available

Course satisfaction rate: new course, still being calculated

A Level 4 Qualification for those who have completed a practitioner mentor qualification to study the underlying theories of mentoring and coaching in more depth. This course helps professionals to reflect on their mentoring experiences and understand the principles underpinning these experience, consequently improving them.

Versions of the Advanced Mentoring Level 4 Qualification:

  • Advanced Mentoring
  • Advanced Mentoring with Coaching
  • Advanced Mentoring Apprentices
  • Advanced Career and Employability Mentoring
  • Advanced Children and Young Person’s Mentoring

This theory-based course is designed for experienced mentors who already have a level 3 qualification (or equivalent) in mentoring. This is due to the fact that the advanced course does not teach practitioner skills (e.g. how to have mentoring conversations), but focusses on the more complex decisions that a mentor makes (e.g. what is the best way to adapt my approach to help this mentee?).

Mentors work through a series of Mandatory Core Modules and then select the Optional Modules related to their pathway.

The programme is assessed by a portfolio due within four months of starting the course. Portfolio sections are completed after each of the modules and then submitted in one submission after completion of the optional units.
