PMI Mentoring and Development Programme

Enrol in the 5th edition of the PMI Mentoring and Development Programme, proudly sponsored by the People's Partnership and offered in partnership with the Institute of Leadership.

Mentoring was traditionally considered as the passing of knowledge from a more experienced peer to a less experienced one, but it is now recognised that both parties should obtain significant benefits from the relationship.
