Workplace learning, coaching and mentoring (B867)

This module offers both a strategic and an operational focus. Students will consider the factors which inform choices about learning and talent development strategies in different contexts. They will also explore the range of workplace interventions which can put these strategies into effect and the models and theories which underpin these. Throughout this module there will be an emphasis on workplace and practice based learning and, relatedly, on professionalism and continuous professional development. Students will look closely at coaching and mentoring in the workplace and will have an opportunity to develop and practise their own coaching and mentoring skills.
