Mentee Workshop

Learn how to get the most out of participating in a mentorship programme

Course Overview

There is a real need for organisations to support learners, interns and employees to help them develop their skills, self awareness and emotional intelligence to maximise their potential in being valuable contributors to the organisation, their communities and society at large. 

Mentees fortunate enough to have a mentor assigned to them can benefit greatly from a Mentoring Relationship where they will learn to manage their own challenges, reach beyond their own boundaries and expand their knowledge base with more confidence.

This 2 day Mentee workshop will provide a fun opportunity for Mentees to learn about themselves, their motivations for growth, about their expectations and needs and how they can get the most from their Mentoring Relationship.

  • Understand the benefits of a comprehensive and supported mentorship program
  • Identify and express realistic needs and expectations of a mentor
