Mentor/Coach Skill Development

Mentor/coaches are the backbone of CAMP. We’re grateful that you’ve chosen to offer your time to support your colleagues, and we want to make sure you’re given all the tools you need. In our mentor/coach skill development sessions you will learn and develop key coaching and mentoring skills from experts and have a safe space to practice among your peers.

These optional sessions are available to mentor/coaches enrolled in CAMP, RSON and/or ROAM, and you don’t need to be currently matched with a mentee/coachee. If you choose to attend, you will receive study credits and a sessional rate payment for your time.
