Mentors may work for government agencies, privately, or in corporations. Some offer mentoring over the phone or internet (e.g. Skype).
Coaches work may also involve:
Personal skills - commitment, self-discipline, patience, enthusiasm, flexibility, innovation, warmth, empathy
Mentors van work formally or informally. There are formal mentoring schemes in some professions; sometimes operated by government bodies, industry associations, charities or employment services.
These schemes are often organised well, with guidelines to follow; and insurance coverage for mentors working under the scheme.
Working under such schemes is the best way to manage risks to both the mentor and client.
Some schemes may pay the mentor, others require mentors to be voluntary.
Start by finding and joining a mentoring scheme.
Work within professional development or education industries
