Qualification: Level 4 Diploma in Adult Care Optional Units
Unit: Unit 435 Mentoring in social care
Learning outcome: 6. Be able to review the progress and achievements of a mentee in partnership with them
Assessment criteria: 6.3 Agree ongoing mentoring support to take place following review

  • Agreeing on ongoing mentoring support following a review is important to ensure that the mentee continues to progress and grow. Here are some steps on how to effectively accomplish this:
  • Revisit Goals: After reviewing the mentee’s progress, revisit their goals. If the goals have been met, new ones should be set. If they haven’t been met, discuss why and adjust as needed.
  • Clarify Expectations: Make sure both the mentor and mentee understand what is expected in the ongoing mentoring relationship. This could include the frequency of meetings, communication methods, and expected outcomes.
  • Develop a Plan: Create a plan detailing what the mentee will work on, what steps they will take, and what support they need from the mentor.
  • Agree on Monitoring: Discuss how the mentee’s progress will be monitored and when the next review will take place. Regular check-ins can help keep the mentee motivated and on track.
  • Maintain Open Communication: Open communication is key to a successful mentoring relationship. Ensure that the mentee feels comfortable discussing their progress, challenges, and any changes in their goals or situation.
  • Encourage Independence: Encourage the mentee to take responsibility for their own development. While the mentor is there for guidance and support, the mentee should be making the decisions and taking the actions.
  • Offer Support: Reiterate your role as a mentor to offer support, provide feedback, and be a resource for the mentee. This can reassure the mentee and encourage them to take advantage of the mentoring relationship.
  • Document Agreement: Document the agreement for ongoing support to ensure both the mentor and mentee are clear about what has been agreed upon. This can serve as a reference point for future discussions and reviews.
  • By establishing an ongoing mentoring support plan and ensuring that both the mentor and mentee are aligned with the plan, the mentoring relationship can continue to develop and the mentee can continue to grow and achieve their goals.
