Extolling the virtues of mentoring in the work place: comparing and contrasting case studies in the NHS and the Police

Theme: Approach/school/theory
Area: Mentoring
Type: Research (completed)
Keywords: Mentoring, learning, case studies, longer term burn, two way process

Session on Wednesday, Jul 11th, 11:50
» Where on timetable


This session will investigate what mentees and mentors perceived they were learning through 3 different formal mentoring programmes over time and how this made a difference to themselves, their jobs and ultimately within the workplace. There is little research in relation to learning for both parties within mentoring and also little research within the Police (two of the three case studies are within the Police.) Comparing and contrasting the three case studies will provide insights into what can be learnt, how this can be learnt and ultimately how to make the most out of formal mentoring programmes.
