Your frequently asked questions, answered

Can I embed mentoring in my learning and development program?

You can indeed! Mentoring and peer learning programs can form an integral part of your L&D offering.

They work alongside other tools to enhance and solidify learning and growth. By offering mentoring you can also multiply the effects of your L&D as your people will share their knowledge with others through the program.

How do I start a workplace mentoring program?

Starting a mentoring program involves some careful planning. Luckily, we’ve put together this step by step guide to designing your mentoring program to help you.

You’ll need to consider factors such as the size and ambition of your program, as well as understand what you hope to achieve through mentoring. With proper preparation you can prevent problems later down the line, so make sure you invest time in the planning stages!

Why is mentoring so powerful for upskilling?

When you learn a skill from someone you trust, that knowledge is far more likely to stick than if you learn it elsewhere. This is what makes mentoring and peer learning so effective for upskilling.

On top of this, they both provide opportunities for continuous learning. Meaning that participants can check back in and ask questions on key learnings to help cement knowledge.

Find out more about the importance of upskilling in our guide.

What is mentoring software?

If you’re considering starting a mentoring program, you’ve likely come across mentoring software, such as Guider. There are different types of mentoring software but they are all designed to facilitate the organisation and management of effective mentoring programs.

This includes matching mentors and mentees, scheduling sessions, and tracking progress. If you want to scale your mentoring program effectively, mentoring software is essential. You can learn more about mentoring software on our blog.

When should I invest in mentoring software?

There’s no right or wrong time to invest in mentoring software. We generally say that for a small program you can manage matching manually.

However, if you want to scale your efforts, track and report on progress and gain expert support – mentoring software is for you. We can help you start, maintain or scale a program and will remove the admin burden of mentoring for your team.
