Each session (4 in total) will be held online via Zoom.

The mentoring is done by Kim Bedford, a past County Officer for Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils and very experienced trainer.

Each session is a morning starting at 9.30am -1pm

The training assists and supports your own learning, giving direction on what  the modules are looking for and how to approach answering them (but it doesn't give you the answers!)

We ask new students to complete a training needs assessment before starting, also we advise you not to register with SLCC until Session 1 has been completed with OALC. Registering with SLCC starts the clock ticking on the year you have in which to complete your work.

Prior to each session, each student registered with OALC, will receive a work sheet detailing any preparation and documents needed in the mentoring session. Please ensure you have printed a copy of the recent Portfolio Guide 2021. It’s a good idea to have a skim through prior to each session to gain an overview of the course.

Each mentoring session will commence with a review of previous sessions and any issues arising. Followed by exploration and discussion on a specified unit from the Portfolio Guide 2021. This will enable students to complete the Learning Outcomes before the next tutorial.
