 How will I benefit from this course?

The humanitarian and development sectors rely on working together to be more effective in what they do. The across organisation approach creates more dialogue, closer working and allows participants to share learning between key humanitarian and development organisations globally.

We aim to build trusted collaborative relationships in the humanitarian/ development sectors, capable of delivering transformational change at the individual, organisational and environmental level through mentoring.

By the end of the programme:

  • Mentees have made progress against their individual learning goals
  • Mentees have developed competence and confidence in one of the following areas: leadership, management or technical skills
  • Both mentors and mentees have developed new perspectives and understanding as a result of the cross-organisation interaction
  • Mentors report that they have developed their own skills and confidence as a mentor
  • Mentors report that they have gained personal satisfaction from mentoring.
