Probably one of the most important aspects of implementing a mentoring or coaching programme is the training programme offered to the mentors and coaches. Too many coordinators assume that if they have followed rigorous selection procedures, they will have high-calibre mentors or coaches who will need little training. However the training is essential in order to thoroughly convey the programme objectives and emphasise their commitment. They should then be taught the underpinning knowledge and skills behind successful mentoring or coaching although many of your group may feel that they have already acquired these skills. Due to the many misconceptions about the interventions, it is imperative that they are led through the process and taught the skills as you wish them to be practised.
