The Industrial Mentor programme is ideal for employed part time students.

The Industrial Mentor programme and the Certificate in Metallurgy  course work in tandem with each other, where the Industrial Mentor plays a supportive role to their mentee's success on their course.


Role of the Industrial Mentor

To complement the student undertaking the Certificate in Metallurgy course, is our Independent Mentor Training Programme which is set at Level 5. 


If you are interested in mentoring in the workplace, our Mentor Training programme will teach you how to guide your mentees, advice on how to provide counselling to your mentees, if and when required, and the techniques on aiding your mentee with technical assistance throughout their course.


You will learn the difference between coaching and mentoring; you will extend your knowledge on the blended learning technique; you will learn how to give feedback effectively; you will further develop your listening skills and much more is included in this programme.


This Industrial Mentor is a mandatory requirement for employers to have in place which enhances the Certificate of Metallurgy student's learning experience and the Industrial Mentor is of huge benefit to the student who will provide their knowledge and experience to their mentee's mini work-based projects. 


The Industrial Mentor will be included in all stages of support for their mentee's learning experience ie mini work-based projects, learning contracts, coursework and assessments together with providing feedback which will aid the formal study assessment modules.

What our Industrial Mentor Students say about the mentors training programme 

"During this process I have been introduced to Bloom's taxonomy of learning, I can see how effective mentoring can encourage the student to learn at a higher level than they may otherwise be inclined. 


This can take the form of probing questions or asking the student to apply, analyse and evaluate their learning.  This should encourage a much deeper level of learning and understanding of the material."
