Our aim is to provide mentoring training to underrepresented members of the MU in Scotland, and the scheme is open to:
- Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic members
- Women members

The training will be provided by Scottish Mentoring Network and participants will achieve a Professional Practice Award in Mentoring (PPAM).
About the course
The PPAM awards is for mentors, or those who would like to take on a mentoring role in the future, to develop and enhance their knowledge and understanding of mentoring and to develop practical mentoring skills essential to providing quality mentoring support.
The course will be delivered online and has 2 units.
