What is mentoring?

Mentoring is the process of providing additional support to a less experienced worker to enhance their skills development and professional growth. Of course it’s possible to transfer skills and expertise to an apprentice without these additional support systems. However, mentoring is sound business practice because it maximises the rate of skills development and minimises the chance of non-completion. Research has shown that a lack of support is a key reason for apprentices failing to complete their qualification.
