NCNS & Cranebrook Connects in partnership with TAFE Outreach, are currently running an Accredited Mentoring Course (Statement of Attainment) at Cranebrook Neighbourhood Centre.
The mentoring program has had 2 sessions with 10 community members attending.
Learning to become a mentor is an important skill, and it’s a skill that’s highly valued in the workplace.
Feedback we have received so far from community members is:
- ‘I’m learning a lot about myself’
- ‘I’m a big talker and I’m learning how important it is to listen’
- ‘I’m a problem solver by nature and I’m learning how to offer options, not try and fix it’
Community members enrolled in this course are learning whilst in a supportive group environment, identifying their strengths and skills, and gaining confidence in their abilities to mentor others.
