Mentoring Programme Management
Mentor is a character in Homer's Odysee. He is the wise advisor, counsellor and supporter, who looked after Telemach, the son of Odysseus whilst he was away. Today, mentoring stands for a relationship between individuals, who work together in role learning and knowledge transfer. Many examples of mentoring relationships in different cultures do exist, for example the Guru in India, the Master in China, the Village Elder in Africa or the Tribal Elder in North America.
