To be an effective mentee, whether it is formal or informal, requires the ability to identify an appropriate mentor while being open to criticism and implementing suggested changes as required.

The PD Training Making the Most of Being Mentored Training course was developed for mentees and ensures that any mentorship program is successful and rewarding by teaching the mentee how to find a mentor, how to build a strong relationship and put the mentor's knowledge to work in a meaningful way.

This dynamic training course is available now throughout Australia, including Brisbane, Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.

Making the Most of Being Mentored Training Course Reviews:

"I loved the Personal Style Profile activity - Advisor, Counsellor, Driver, Coach. By having participants walk around and stand next to a profile of choice, it encouraged deep self-reflection on one's work style/personal style."

Queensland Competition Authority (QCA)


"Course provided a great overview of the mentor/ mentee relationship, how to approach mentors and how to manage expectations."

"It was a really positive course and should be included in the regular schedule of professional development courses. It really opened my eyes to the fact that a mentor program should be more readily available to CDI staff."

In-House Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
