Coaching and Mentoring
Coaching and Mentoring 2023-24
School Of Medical And Health Sciences
Module - Semester 1
Workshops will introduce you to the main concepts in coaching and mentoring, and provide you with an opportunity to explore the topic by considering how you can support the development of others as a coach or mentor.
A lecture series will also provide insights from the helping professions. These insights will include consideration of both coaching and mentoring (e.g. models, skills, practical applications, etc). Each lecture will be accompanied by a reading list accessible through the University library.
Assessments will enable you to critically apply your understanding in an essay and a reflective journal mapping your experiences as a coach or mentor, and planning your future development.
