Coaching & Mentoring Training

Training Hub is committed to developing coaches and mentors in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by providing a programme of quality coaching and mentoring training.

Coaching and mentoring is a key professional development tool to support adult reflective learning. It is used in leadership development, and to support senior managers and clinicians throughout the NHS and to assist the primary care workforce to grow and develop.

Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires individuals to maximise their personal and professional potential. It helps to boost morale, increase motivation, engage enthusiasm, reduce levels of stress, improve self-confidence and performance and encourage a more proactive approach to addressing issues and making decisions.

In Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, coaching is currently offered through our network of CPTH coaches and also via the NHSE/I Looking After You service.

Who is Coaching & Mentoring Training for?

Coaching and mentoring training is for those who:

  • are working with staff/learners/patients and want to have better conversations
  • want to develop skills in coaching and mentoring personally, to enhance their clinical, managerial and educational work
  • may want to become a coach/mentor as part of their portfolio career

Multi-professional Preceptorship Training

The Preceptor eCompendium provides new preceptors/mentors with the guidance, support, resources and practical tools that they need for this role. It aims to help them reflect on their own experiences of this transition into the workforce, and to optimise their knowledge and skills to best position themselves to support others. It also supports the preceptor to develop valuable skills that will help them in other supporting roles that they will find themselves taking on during their current or future roles.

This programme is made up of 5 learning sessions, consisting of:

Session 1: The Preceptor Role
Session 2: Leading and coaching Preceptees
Session 3: Identifying/agreeing the Preceptee’s learning/support needs
Session 4: The health and well-being of the Preceptor and Preceptee
Session 5: Reflecting on your experience as a Preceptor

On successful completion of all the five sessions, the final online assessment will evidence that you have met the learning outcomes and provide a certificate to confirm you have successfully completed all of the learning sessions in the eCompendium.
