The words coaching and mentoring are often used interchangeably and there is some debate about the differences and similarities of each approach. Often, and where possible, coaching associated with the immediate work role should be supported by the line manager or perhaps another colleague who has experience or skills the area which needs to be developed. Where the need cannot be supported locally and where it is agreed as being appropriate there are opportunities for staff to receive individual coaching or mentoring support.
Yorkshire Accord Coaching and Mentoring Scheme
About the Scheme
The Yorkshire Accord Coaching and Mentoring Scheme is a highly successful partnership between various public sector organisations in North Yorkshire. Established in 2000, the Scheme has been steadily expanding and currently has 13 partner organisations which represent; Local authorities, Health care services, Uniformed services and Further and Higher Education Institutions.
We particularly encourage people who belong to an under-represented group at senior levels to participate in the Scheme and believe that this is a positive way to promote diverse representation at senior level.
