TRaining for Unique Skills and Techniques for MEntoring - TRUST-ME

The project “TRUST ME” will develop an advanced curriculum for mentors and start the development of networks of mentors with the long term objective to create national networks covering regions, countries and whole European regions.

The TRUST ME project develops 4 training modules for the capacity building of mentoring skiils (in English, French, Hungarian, Romanian and Finnish) for different target groups (Mentors primarily plus some SME owners and manager and higher educational students):


  • Module 1 – Assessment tool of entry level
  • Module 2 – Soft skills of a mentor
  • Module 3 – Diagnosis and accompanying
  • Module 4 – Tools for continuing assessment

The development of this advanced mentoring training content and pilot training is based on the experience of the partners, with a special mention to ADINVEST International at field level between mentors and SMEs, and of intermediary results of the INSIS project lead by the Budapest Business School (on intergenrational transmission of SMEs).

The assessement, validation and recognition process of the learning outcomes will strongly use the OpenBadges system as a practical and field solution. This will be in line with ECVET approaches, but which are with a longer term perspective.

The platform is supporting the TRUST ME project in this approach. Imple badges will be implemented first to make sure all partners and involved stakeholders become familiar with OpenBadges (for instance: to be used as well to monitor project's activities and contributions). The specific content of OpenBadges for the learning outcomes validation of the TRUST ME project will gradually build over the 2 year duration of the project (starting November 2015) and may become fully integrated into the online learning facilities to be impletemented by the project. To be kept informed please send us your details.
