The Learning Mentor apprenticeship standard is designed for apprentices who support learners to develop within a new work role.  These may be learners of all ages and all levels and could be apprentices, trainees or new recruits (ranging from young entrants, to new CEOs) in the workplace, or in any vocational learning environment.

Full details of the standard are available on the Institute for Apprenticeships website.
