The project has also agreed to fund the provision of three mentoring days over the coming months.

The workshops will be delivered by Cardiff and the Vale College on three separate dates, in three different locations. There are a limited number of places available on each day.

This is a full day event; the scheduled dates are:

Tuesday 6th February 2024 at the Business Centre, Cardiff and the Vale College, One Canal Parade, Cardiff CF10 5FE

Wednesday 20th March 2024 at the Learning and Development centre HMP Parc, Bridgend

This is a brief overview of the workshops content.

The day will start by exploring personality profiling and will allow delegates to gain an understanding of their own personality type. The tutor will then lead delegates through mentoring in practice and how the use of questioning and providing feedback can be put into practise. The session will then consider different mentoring models, before using group work exercises to explore the use of the GROW model. This will allow delegates to have an opportunity to try their questioning techniques and learn from the experience and practice of others.

The GROW Model is a coaching framework used in conversations, meetings and everyday leadership to unlock potential and possibilities. GROW was created by Sir John Whitmore and colleagues in the late 1980s. It has since become the world’s most popular coaching model for problem solving goal setting and performance improvement.

The workshop will then go on to discuss problem solving through conversation, with some group work activity before the tutor concludes the day by addressing any questions delegates may have.
