Induction of the ARMS mentors
On 11 - 12 May 2019, we held an induction workshop for the newly appointed ARMS mentors in Hyderabad. The induction was hosted by the British Council staff and ARMS Super Mentors.
The mentors were introduced to the main principles and practices of action research, prompting rich and lively discussions around the ARMS mentors’ hopes and expectations for their mentees and their projects. Time was also spent exploring the role of a mentor and the types of qualities and skills they would need to effectively support their mentees.
Four ARMS mentors from our second cohort shared their experience; this proved a productive session where our new cohort got to hear first-hand their predecessors successes, challenges and lessons learned.
Watch this space as we follow our ARMS mentors over the next ten months.
