Course description

Mentoring is - and has been for centuries - the foundation of vocational training and apprenticeships, yet this standard is the first formal recognition of this role.  Nowadays, mentoring takes place in all parts of the Education and Training Sector (ETS) and staff-development contexts. LMs support learners of all ages, and all levels, to develop within a new work role.  These learners may be, for example, apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants, to new CEOs) in the workplace, or in any vocational learning environment. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:

  • A strong aspiration to support learners.
  • (As a dual-professional) A qualification, at an appropriate level in the candidate’s vocational/subject specialism.
  • Recent experience and knowledge relevant to the context of the mentoring role (e.g. current industry standards).

Candidates may have achieved maths, English and ICT skills at Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their training. Those that have not must achieve this prior to taking the end-point assessment.

Outcome / Qualification etc.


Outcomes for this standard must include:

  • Level 1 Safeguarding

Employers may also wish candidates to achieve appropriate additional qualifications in Education and Training including mentorship.

The above outcomes will be achieved before the end-point assessment.
