Mentoring Services

We understand that, sometimes, apprentices or trainees may be affected or distracted by issues outside of the workplace that can negatively impact their work performance. This could include difficulties at home, during training, or for other reasons.

If you have noticed that your apprentice or trainee may need some assistance, MEGT offers a free and confidential mentoring service to apprentices or trainees who you hire directly, and who have been signed into a training contract by MEGT.

These services include:

  • Development of a ‘stay at work’ plan for apprentices or trainees who might be at risk of not completing their studies due to work, training, or personal issues
  • Regular site visits or phone calls to discuss challenges at home or work that may be impacting their performance
  • Offering advice for supervisors to provide them with the tools they need to manage staff issues
  • Connection to professional support services if and when required

Our mentors are here to help apprentices or trainees with a wide range of issues, including:

  • Work and training
    • Completing paperwork or accessing information
    • Transport issues
    • Difficulty understanding job role
    • Workplace issues
