Become a mentor

Mentoring is a powerful tool – as a mentor you support a mentee to manage their own learning and development. You help set personal goals and work together towards achieving positive change. By sharing your knowledge, experience and expertise you can help your mentee develop a competitive edge in the graduate job market.

Professional qualifications in mentoring and coaching

Brunel University London is partnering with Silver Pebble Ltd, an approved centre of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), to offer mentors in the WiBEC programme the opportunity to achieve a recognised qualification in coaching and mentoring. Anyone acting as a mentor to a Brunel student is eligible to register for the qualification, which is delivered in parallel with the practical mentoring activity that you carry out with the students.

Qualification options - The qualifications are optional – there is no requirement to become qualified to join the WiBEC programme as a mentor.

New mentors - For those new to mentoring, the CMI level 3 in Coaching and Mentoring will introduce you to the principles, skills and impact of coaching and mentoring and will develop your skills in coaching and mentoring to meet both individual and team needs.

Experienced mentors - If you are already an experienced mentor, the CMI level 5 Award in Management Coaching and Mentoring is designed for practising middle managers and those aspiring to senior management to develop management coaching, mentoring and the achievement of business goals.

Chartered Management Institute - CMI is the UK’s largest provider of management qualifications, with over 30,000 qualifiers every year. All managers taking a CMI qualification are granted free membership for one year, giving access to a wide range of benefits including networking and on-line management resources. Full details are available www.managers.org.uk

Registration and enquiries - To register for either of the qualifications, or for further information about timing and the costs involved, please contact Jeremy Webster of Silver Pebble Ltd by email at Jeremy.webster@silverpebble.co.uk. Jeremy is a Brunel Graduate and teaches coaching and mentoring on MEng and MSc programmes at the University.
