SkillGate offers leading-edge Mentoring or Coaching software.
Although coaching and mentoring are quite different issues in may ways, from a systems point of view the software for both has a lot in common:
1. Appropriate coaches and mentors have to be matched with delegates.
2. Coaching and mentoring is typically done on a one to one meeting basis that is hard for administrators to monitor or follow.
3. Coaches often require additional support material and support systems.
4. Administrators typically want some kind of sign-off and assessment of achievement.
The system allows delegates looking for a mentor to search for mentors by grade, skills, history or mentoring preferences.
It then manages the mentor and mentee through the mentoring/coaching process, suggesting milestones and keeping records of progress.
Coach! can be integrated with other SkillGate products so that a comprehensive learning support approach can be adopted by the mentor.
