How to become a mentor
In order to be a mentor and assist others (pre-registration and post-registration students as well as clients, relatives, qualified staff, ancillary staff) to learn, it is important to understand the different ways that people learn, ways of supporting learning and teaching and also to consider how to be fair in judging whether learning has been effective.
