Peer Mentoring Training
We provide introductory training for mentors and mentees to help you in your mentoring journey. We also provide developmental supervision sessions for mentors as we recognise mentoring requires a skill-set that can be developed and strengthened.
We would encourage you to read the NHS Lothian Guide for Effective Mentoring before engaging in either our live webinars or online training.
Sign up for Peer Mentoring Supervision Sessions:
This is an opportunity for mentors on the Peer Mentoring Programme to explore their mentoring experiences so far and progress their skills in order to benefit their mentoring relationship and personal development.
Support and troubleshooting will also be a key part of this session if you are finding the mentoring experience challenging and wanting to learn from the experiences of others.
Certification of attendance will be available.
Any issues please contact us at email@example.com.
Option 1: Live webinars
We host regular live training webinars via Microsoft Teams for mentors and mentees. We would encourage you to try and join these as your 'first line' option for training, as you will have the opportunity to meet members of the peer mentoring support team who can answer any questions you may have during the training. Join our Teams channel through the link at the bottom of the page, where we post dates of upcoming webinars.
Option 2: Online training
For those who cannot attend the live dates, we have recorded a series of online training videos which can be accessed below (you must log-in to the MED website to access this content).
Please complete the feedback form to receive your training certificate.
Next step on the mentoring journey
This is an opportunity for mentors on the Peer Mentoring Programme to build on the learning in the introductory training sessions and explore their mentoring experiences so far.
We want mentors to progress their skills in order to not only benefit their mentoring relationship, but also enhance their leadership abilities for the future.
Support and troubleshooting are key parts of this session if you are finding the mentoring experience challenging and wanting to learn from the experiences of others.
We are also keen to hear from you how we can improve the training and support for you from Peer Mentoring Programme - email us or fill out the Check-in survey at the bottom of the page!
