FE mentoring framework and guides for leaders and managers

As a leader or manager, you are key to creating a learning culture across your organisation. Mentoring can be one of the most effective methods of continuing professional development for practitioners. However, in order for them to be effective certain conditions need to be in place. The ETF’s FE mentoring framework outlines a set of practices to enable effective mentoring.

The Guide for leaders and managers accompanies the ETF’s mentoring framework. It provides you as a manager or leader with information and ideas for how to implement or enhance a mentoring programme in your organisation.

Mentoring resources created by the FE sector

These resources have been created by FE and Training providers for the sector. You may wish to use them to help manage the delivery of mentoring, or development of materials, for your own organisation.
