Apprenticeships assure quality learning, decrease skills mismatch and increase youth employment. However, quality apprenticeships depend on mentorship competence and, although most mentors at SMEs are highly skilled on their technical area, they lack the necessary pedagogy to be able to transfer these skills to apprentices. The MentorTrain project, therefore, aims to create a platform for imparting pedagogical skills to mentors, particularly experienced workers from SMEs who may not necessarily have relevant teaching experience but are working with students/apprentices from professional higher educational institutions at EQF levels 5-7.
