Mentoring Apprentices Workshop – 26 March 2020
There are many benefits to employing apprentices but it brings additional responsibilities and challenges which can seem daunting, particularly for those considering it for the first time or for whom it has not gone smoothly in the past. From time to time they may need advice and support to keep their apprentices on track and motivated but may not know where to obtain it.
Purpose of the workshop
This free workshop is an opportunity for employers to explore the common issues that can arise when mentoring an apprentice and discuss practical ways to handle them. Topics will range from monitoring progress and tackling unsatisfactory performance to managing high flyers, motivating someone who is struggling and dealing with personal issues. The session will also address what to do if your apprenticeship provider is underperforming. It will include examples of how issues have been successfully addressed and highlight sources of support and guidance.
