Mentorship Process

Wired4ex Takes a 4-step process

Step 1 : Get to know and meet

In this meeting (online through multimedia or face to face), trainers/mentors help trainee/mentees plan tasks or sessions by asking them to do the following. This should happen during the first 30 days on launch of a cohort.

  • Get to know and meet, identify the professional needs and aspirations· 
  • State the goals of the trainee/mentorship process· 
  • Summarize what’s needs to be done or achieved within the training/mentorship period· 
  • Clarify the roles of those involved in the training/mentorship journey·
  • List the actions of those involved in the task or session for the first 3 months, 6months or 9 months· 
  • Itemize the challenges and opportunities associated with performing the tasks or sessions· 
  • Identify what successful completion of the task or session would look like· 
  • Link the mentee to the training programs applied for in the course listing

Step 2 : Working with the mentoree

Trainer/Mentor gets full access to the Trainee/mentee through face to face or multimedia. Wired4Ex program avails the learning resources for self-development on offer, customized for healthcare managers (courses listing). The courses have been designed to be learner driven BUT facilitated by the trainers. Each course has its sets of skills to be gained. All materials for participants are shared by the trainers and coordinated from Wired4EX. All rights to proprietary materials are held by Wired4EX.The learners are appraised through observation by Wired4Ex trainers/mentors and Project Director, completing an appraisal sheet at the end of each session. The learner will complete an initial Skills Audit and SWOT Analysis in Session 1 and then in the last session of each course taken. Wired4Ex Project facilitator and trainers will ensure that each participant gets the materials (slides and handouts) together with learner’s handbook for practice. The facilitators of the program will have the teacher’s guide and scheme of work so that they could guide the students. The following are some of the courses;
