Effective mentoring, pastoral care and support for apprentices 2012
Client: Group Training Australia
Together with Chris Lloyd of Wiyunga Pty. Ltd., the WRC conducted this research to understand and identify effective mentoring strategies within the Group Training realm. The research identified the various types of mentoring and pastoral support, governance and management structures, and whether the mentoring strategies varied in different constituent apprentice groups. The report seeks to develop a set of good practice principles that can be used to inform workplace practice and broader policy approaches to mentoring in the Group Training setting. The methodology involved key informant interviews and focus groups in order to develop a best practice typology.
