Online Mentoring Program

Online Mentoring Program

Our goal is to provide support students to develop their courses, workshops or a training programs in Biography Work


The program is available for graduates of any recognised Biography Training Program.
The mentors are Karl-Heinz Finke, who has worked as a consultant and trainer in Biography Work and Adult Education since 1998, assisted by Laura Summerfield.
This 3-year Mentoring Program deepens knowledge of Holistic Biography Work, and increases skills in design and delivery of courses and trainings.
Our mentoring includes possible participation as a Group Guide in some of the 12 modules of our 3-year Online Training Program.
Mentees receive the Learning Packs for all of our courses, and attend online sessions as agreed.
The modules in Holistic Adult Learning extend knowledge and skill.
Extra Mentoring Sessions are scheduled in conjunction with our Training modules, to support group facilitation skills, and include daily evaluation and feedback sessions.
One-to-one coaching of Mentees is not part of this program. If such coaching is wanted or needed, then an additional contract must be agreed upon.
