EMCC EQA Bespoke Practitioner Mentoring Programme

The South West Leadership Academy’s European Mentoring and Coaching Council accredited two-day mentoring programme for practitioner level mentors started this week. On successful completion of the programme participants will receive a EMCC European Quality Award (EQA) Bespoke Programme Certificate, and will also be recommended for EMCC Professional Designation as a Mentor and Coach.

From the programme participants will understand the concept of mentoring, the roles and responsibilities for mentors and mentee, recognise the EMCC core competencies for mentoring, be able to apply a selected range of tools and techniques and have an awareness of change theories. They will also feel capable of managing the client contract, evaluating and reflecting on their own mentoring practice and identifying development areas and opportunities for CPD.
