Learning at work is fundamental to ensuring a workforce is sufficiently skilled and motivated to meet the demands of a successful and growing organisation in the 21st century. Creating opportunities for people to learn at and through work is something the Trust is fully committed to and aims to engage its employees in.

Mentoring is a flexible means of personal development – with the emphasis on empowering people to take charge of their own learning, effectiveness and growth. It provides one-to-one medium to long term support aimed at maximising an individual’s potential and realising ambition. It supports more formal development by providing opportunity for reflection and challenge, advice, guidance and support within a safe, constructive and confidential relationship.

In order to facilitate access to mentoring at work the Trust has invested in the development of a mentoring ‘database’. This is a secure web based application that offers the facility for people to register as potential mentors and for individuals seeking a mentor to conduct a search for someone suitable as a mentor. The database operates in a similar way to an online ‘dating’ site.
