Mentoring & Coaching

This course is ideal those who wish to coach and mentor within a workplace or education and training environment. This Mentoring & Coaching course is a SAQA unit standard-based course, that teaches you how to guide and advise learners and colleagues in the best way possible to encourage and ignite development.


Our Accredited Mentoring & Coaching in the Workplace Course is based on:

SAQA Unit Standard 117874 – “Guide learners about their learning, assessment and recognition opportunities” – NQF Level 5, 6 credits

SAQA Unit Standard 117865 – “Assist and support learners to manage their learning experiences” – NQF Level 4, 5 credits

Successful students will be certified on NQF level 4 & 5 and awarded with 11 credits.


The course takes place over 3-4 days, depending on the size of the group, during which we cover theoretical and practical work through a simulation in class.

Our courses are based on outcomes-based principles and we focus on small group sessions, which ensure that every student receives individual attention.

We offer courses in Nelspruit, Durban, Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth but we travel for groups of more than five students.  All our courses are generic and accepted by all SETA’s and ETQA’s, so it doesn’t matter in which field you work, we cater for everybody.

After the contact session learners are also expected to complete some activities on their own.

The course fee includes support after the course which can be given through another contact session or telephonically, which ever suits the student best.

Duration: 3-4 days

Cost: R5150

Guide learners about their learning,

assessment and recognition opportunities

Assist and support learners to

manage their learning experiences

Learners are required to participate fully in group and individual learning activities throughout the workshop. Learners are also encouraged to identify and express their specific learning needs and to contribute freely from their own experience. During the four day contact session, the facilitator also focus on change management and motivational aspects, as we’ve identified these issues as key areas of SAQA and implementing the NQF.

During the workshop, participants will be briefed on how to prepare and present a Portfolio of Evidence for assessment.  As soon as a candidate SDF is found to be competent, and once Equipt has received endorsement – including your official number from the ETDP SETA, we will issue the necessary certificate on NQF level 4-5, (11 credits).

Our accreditation number at the ETDP SETA is ETDP10388.
