Details of a nominated mentor

Mentors are a vital part in the ATDP training process. Mentors constantly monitor a trainee and provide feedback about what a trainee may have learned or the way in which a particular task was undertaken.

To be a mentor of level 1 candidates, the person must hold a level 2 qualification in the same stream.

Mentors enter their feedback in the Workplace Experience Logbook of their trainees and notify ATDP when certain milestones have been achieved.

Has the mentor been contacted and been requested to undertake this task?
