Mentoring Meetings:
Participants are encouraged to met with their mentors approximately once a month over the course of the programme. A guideline for the meeting time is approximately an hour. You are also encouraged to keep a learning log or journal of your mentoring sessions to note down thoughts and areas that you want to reflect on further.

A participant can decide to work on each online module and pair it with the masterclass below or they can move on to the next online module at their own pace. You must achieve 80% attendance at masterclasses and 70% mark in the online quizzes and engage in the mentoring relationship.

We recommend that you do not leave the entire online portion of the programme until the end as leaving this to the last minute could be very stressful and might result in you feeling overwhelmed and dissatisfied with your mark.

Activity: Online Masterclasses
You must attend at least 80% of these
