Coaching and mentoring

Coaching and mentoring are valuable development interventions which have a number of benefits over other types of development. They both provide personalised and targeted support and can be set up quickly, thereby responding in an agile way to an individual's learning and development needs. Some departments offer informal, internal mentoring opportunities, but both Coaching and Mentoring are also available via Organisational Development.
