Mentoring the Next Creative Generation

Ideal if you’re looking for practical ways to develop and nurture the skills, knowledge and experience of emerging creatives in the early stages of their careers.

Mentoring young creatives (both formally and informally) is vital to our work with young people. Excellent mentoring enhances skills through supportive relationships, encourages space for self-directed learning and helps shape behaviours which in turn encourage growth and development in others.

This course provides a way of developing your mentoring skills, with expert advice and discussions with peers. Following a successful three-year programme (Stepping Up: Young Leaders Training),Artswork, OYAP Trust and Oxford Brookes University have teamed up to bring you this course. Exploring the principles of mentoring, you will be equipped with the tools to support the next generation of creative practitioners and leaders.

You will gain

  •  A practical framework for best practice mentoring
  • Knowledge about the principles which shape great mentoring
  • Personalised mentoring advice
  • How to plan and evaluate a mentee’s development, as well as your own
  • Practical mentoring techniques
