Mentoring Training

Many organisations are implementing formalised mentoring programs among staff. Implementing a mentorship program that is both successful and rewarding is achieved by teaching the mentor specific behaviours for fostering a purposeful mentoring relationship.

The PD Training Mentoring Training Course assists mentors to gain important skills in mentoring like goal setting, identifying personality strengths and weaknesses, how to give criticism and much more, so that you can become an effective and successful mentor.

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

"I never realised that there was so much involved in MENTORING someone. Andrew was really knowledgeable on the TOPIC and kept us all interested in what he was saying. I will use this approach in my work and have learnt a lot of useful terminology."

-Prahran Mission


"Understanding different learning styles and how it will help me as a mentor to educate a new student. The new layout of the folder, especially dispatch, is really good and will ensure that everything is done and expectations are met."

"Troy was an amazing trainer. He was enthusiastic and engaging and knew a lot about our organisation and the subject matter. He was easy to converse with and very knowledgeable. I found the training to be extremely useful. I previously didn't know about different personality types and different learning techniques. I have learnt a lot from this course. I also think the new Performance Workbook is fantastic. It makes both the mentor and trainii accountable and ensures all things are covered in the mentoring phase."

Mentoring isn't what it used to be. In today's high-tech, global economy, the days of stiff hierarchy and loyalty to the status quo are long gone.


Today's mentors understand that they have as much to gain from building close working relationships and sharing their experience with others as they have to give. Whether you are entering an informal arrangement or a formal training program, learn how to make mentoring more meaningful for everyone.

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

Face-to-Face, 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 connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
