Coaching and Mentoring
Coaching and mentoring have a key role to play in enabling colleagues throughout our system to meet the health, social and economic challenges that we currently face.
At its simplest, coaching and mentoring provide support to individuals, adding to their personal flexibility and resilience. They both help to:
- Develop self-awareness
- Clarify or find a sense of purpose and balance
- Help the individual to manage and enhance the impact of self on their work relationships and environment
Having a coach or mentor can also help people to greater support to others, instilling in themselves a coaching style when working with peers, their team, and their line managers.

Coaching vs Mentoring
Coaching and mentoring are terms that are often used interchangeably but intrinsically different.
Note: It is important to remember that mentoring is not counseling or therapy – through the mentor may help the mentee to access more specialised avenues of help if it becomes apparent that this would be the best way forward. If you are still unsure whether you would benefit more from coaching or mentoring, then please feel free to get in touch. See the back page for further information detailing organisational, regional, and national offers.
Our pool of coaches and mentors
We are currently recruiting coaches and mentors and are looking to hear from anyone working within LLR who has mentoring qualifications or who is qualified at ILM5 (or equivalent) in coaching.
You will be offered CPD as a member of the pool.
In order to measure activity and take-up we will also require you to feedback the number of coaching /mentoring hours you undertake each month as well as any emerging themes as this may influence future work within other workstreams.
