Since 1996 we have been developing CA Programmes and performing effective independent assessments.
Mentorship and supervision of Trainees is a very important part in ensuring the successful running and implementation of the CA Training Programme. Mentors and Reviewers will undergo training highlighting their responsibilities and providing additional skills to these individuals.
The above includes the following but is not limited to:
- What role the Reviewer/Mentor plays in the attainment of the Trainee’s competencies;
- How Trainees are going to be assessed;
- The role all Stakeholders will play in the assessment and evaluation process
- Rating Scales;
- Development areas and when is it required;
The Mentors for the CA Trainees should be qualified CA’s, Senior Financial Management or related positions. Separate Reviewers should be appointed for the Trainees. These will be the line managers for whom the trainees will work during their practical experience training.
In order for existing Management to act as Mentors their job descriptions should be modified to recognise mentoring as a part of their responsibility, and for which they will be assessed and rewarded.
