MENTORCERT PILOT TRAINING:
In all the four participating countries (Portugal, the UK, Poland and Hungary) a 2-day pilot training will be organised for 20-20 participants. One vertical and one horizontal topic (see below) will be tested in each country through face-to-face trainings, e-learning materials and with the usage of a business simulation game.
The participants of the trainings are kindly asked to complete the feedback forms regarding the e-learning materials and the face-to-face trainings. It will help a lot in the finalisation and further development of the training programme and the materials for the project partners.
We are sure that the pilot trainings will be interesting and useful for everybody!
Thanks for your participation and your valuable feedbacks in advance!

THE AIM OF THE PROJECT IS TO
- facilitate mentoring and coaching techniques by development of the business mentor trainings set for relevant horizontal and vertical issues. University Partners of the MentorCert project (Budapest Business School - BBS, Leeds Beckett University - LBU, Catholic University of Portugal - UCP and Warsaw University of Technology - WUT) deal with the following trainings preparation (syllabuses and training materials) with working groups responsibilities:
Vertical issues: Horizontal issues:
Tourism industry – led by BBS Transition – led by BBS
Fin Tech – led by LBU Business start-ups – led by LBU
Agro-food industry – led by UCP Nascent entrepreneurs – led by UCP
Construction industry – led by WUT Mature enterprises – led by WUT
- prepare a solid basis for recognition of mentor qualifications: vocabulary, fundamentals and requirements for the mentor and certification bodies using the experience of ADINVEST International and the guidance of EFCoCert.

CESIM SIMULATION GAME USED FOR MENTORCERT
CESIM simulations allows participants to put theory into practice in a risk-free environment. Through this kind of experimentation, participants can put theories to the test, see what works, and become innovative in their solutions to problems. Learning outcomes are highly dependent on the conditions and motivation for learning. The game-like nature of business simulations is proven to engage participants and develop deep-learning skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving.
Learning to fail and to cope with uncertainty
Failure is never pleasant, but learning from your own mistakes is key part of self-improvement. Business simulations provide a risk-free environment where failure is safe, yet the lessons learned are genuine and applicable in real life.
MENTORCERT CERTIFICATION PROCEDURES
- EU MENTORCERT 2000: European certification of business mentors – Fundamentals and vocabulary
- EU MENTORCERT 2001: European certification of business mentors – Requirements
- EU MENTORCERT 2021: European certification of business mentors – Requirements for certification bodies
MentorCERT project based on the results of previous An Erasmus+ project led by BBS and called TRUST ME (TRaining for Unique Skills and Techniques for MEntoring). TRUST ME produced a (soft) skill card for general SME-mentors, a hard knowledge package necessary for a mentor and also few assessment tools (entry level, continuing assessment and final assessment) for the mentor training courses.
