Mentors Guide

When you sign up for the Free Resource Pack mentors should establish either an Impact Team Chat Group either by an APP, we would recommend ‘What’s App’ or via e-mail group, with the apprentices you are supporting. This can be as few as 1 or 2 but no more than 20. If you are looking after more than 20 apprentices, create separate groups.

Apprentices should also have access to a ‘private’ email account with you, to discuss any issues that they feel are inappropriate for the ‘Group’ discussion.

When you have received the Impact Aim Weekly Work Out Free Resource Pack you should:

1. Register & Login
Register and Login to Impact Aim platform and complete Level 2 Learning Module by clicking this link
2. Share Link with Group
Now send the link above to your Apprentice Group and ask them to register and login to complete the learning module tasks. Give them a timeline for this to be complete – i.e. within the next 48 hours
3. Engage with Group

Engage the group with a message via the Group Chat App or e-mail – Here is an example:

Morning everyone how are you getting on with the Respect session? The module on ‘Respect’ looks at ways that showing or being shown respect greatly affects your attitude to your job and your performance. If you are having any difficulties with completing the work let me know either here or by my private e-mail and I can help you with this?

4. Send Reminders
Also send reminders via this link to encourage completion of the learning module on the platform.
5. Send Part A Module Material

After the deadline for completing the formal learning part of the module is over send Part B with another message, here is another example:

The module on ‘Respect’ looked at ways that showing or being shown respect greatly affects your attitude to your job and your performance. It would be great for everyone to share an example when being shown a lack of respect has affected you, how this made you feel and how you overcome this?

6. Send Part B Module Material
After the deadline for completing the formal learning part of the module is over send Part B with another message, here is another example: The module on ‘Respect’ looked at ways that showing or being shown respect greatly affects your attitude to your job and your performance.

7. Provide Feedback
Once you receive replies you should respond appropriately, with feedback and support to encourage the group to interact together and generate further discussion with comments of their own.

You can add further appropriate external links on the subject or in-house articles produced by your company that you feel will be of benefit to the apprentices in your group(s).Remember the AiM is to generate social interaction and communication that leads to accelerated learning and builds self-awareness among the individuals in your apprentice group.

8. Thank Apprentices and Close Discussion
At the end of the week, close the discussion on the group chat or email links, by thanking the apprentices for their contributions. Finally save all the communications to an archive file, that you can review and use for supporting evidence in the future. The formal learning module the apprentices completed on the platform will be auto saved and tracked as evidence of their individual progress.
