Executive Summary

The aim of the module Leadership and Mentoring is to develop a student’s knowledge and understanding about leadership and preparation to undertake the role of mentor. This is because leading others and acting as a mentor provides insightful ways of developing self and others. Contemporary methods of leadership married with mentoring provide an opportunity for the student to explore both leadership and mentoring in a variety of contexts and purposes. A person who except the role of mentor may have to adopt or use many different skills depending on the needs of the learner. The mentor is likely to develop a leader-follower relationship and may carry out a wide range of directing and helping strategies to facilitate successful learning. This module will put mentoring into a learning environment and prepare the student to take on the role of mentor.
