A toolkit of exercises for mentors in the CONNECT programme

Building and nurturing relationships is an essential part of an audience development strategy. One can learn a lot by being in a mentoring relationship, learn more about oneself and about the way you relate yourself to your audiences.

Mentoring, as a process of both formal and informal transmission not only of knowledge but also of values, represents a learning method relevant to work, career and professional development in many sectors.

Mentoring is a one to one relationship built upon trust and mutual respect.

This toolkit was developed by Adrian De La Court and Sian Prime, in collaboration with Melting Pro.

The kit was developed as a reference guide to help the mentors enrolled in the CONNECT Programme to manage the one to one relationship with the mentee. However, it is useful both for individuals or organisations that are either new to mentoring as methodology, either for experienced mentors, since there is a rich tool section to use as prompts during mentoring meetings.

You are going to find:

An explanation of mentoring within CONNECT, the structure of the mentoring programme and the tools.

Many of these tools have been developed with Nesta (www.nesta.org.uk), or at Goldsmiths.
