The dates have just been released for the next SEDA accredited Mentoring and Coaching course. Although aimed primarily at academic staff it also helps those who have a mentoring function as part of their role. It runs over 6 months. There are 3.5 Face to Face sessions which are compulsory and additional scaffolded work on Blackboard to help you complete the four short assignments. The Blackboard site has been completely overhauled from last year and provides lots of advice, resources and support. You can sign up on Eventbrite here but before you do, you must discuss the course with your line manager and you must have a mentee for the duration of the course. However, don’t take too long as numbers are limited to 24.
