Mentoring Skills Development

Develop your skills as a mentor supporting women in ICT and Construction.

The WAVE Project is looking for women working in ICT, and Construction and the Built Environment, who want to gain accredited skills as a Mentor and progress their careers.

If you are keen to share your experience to benefit other women in these sectors, we want to hear from you.

WAVE will provide you with access to Mentoring training through an Institute of Leadership and Management Level 3 Award, via the Women’s Workshop Project @ BAWSO Ltd, or through a Level 7 Post-Graduate Certificate via the University of South Wales.

Once trained, you will be part of a new specialist Mentoring Scheme to support women in ICT and Construction through the WAVE Project. The skills and know-how learnt on this programme will also benefit your employer and can be used to support others in the workplace.

Participation as a mentor or mentee will:

  • Assist your career development and progression
  • Develop your listening, questioning and communication skills
  • Enhance your management and leadership skills
  • Increase your skills and confidence to set and reach personal and career goals
  • Enable you to support other women in Construction and ICT
  • Widen your network for business and raise your profile
  • Improve your performance and effectiveness, at work and beyond

The WAVE Mentoring Skills ILM Level 3 Award offers a flexible and practical Mentoring Skills programme with delivery and assignments specifically designed for women from ICT and Construction working environments.

About Us

The aim of the WAVE programme is to understand and ‘interrupt’ the ways in which gender pay inequalities are consistently reproduced through occupational segregation in employment and self employment, through the ways in which ‘women’s work is contracted’ and through the operation of pay systems.


The WAVE programme has now concluded after 3 successful years.  There are still loads of fantastic organisations that you can get involved with, take a look!
