1:1 Mentoring Program - GROW Framework (6-12 months)



Practera’s 1:1 Mentoring Program is a learning program that connects mentees and mentors on a meaningful mentoring journey.

The generic structure of this mentoring program means that it is suitable for numerous mentoring programs, styles and settings. This Program has 11 feedback loops and can be used over a range of durations; however, we recommend using the program over a min. 6 month period to allow time for meetings, reflection and actioning goals in real-life.

Mentees set goals and review their progress, supported by their mentor and in-built learning content. The goal setting and refinement framework used in the program is called GROW - Goal, Reality, Options, Way Forward.

The users of the Mentoring 1:1 program include:

  • one or multiple Students/Mentees (app)
  • one or multiple Mentors (app); and
  • a Program Coordinator (coordinator interface)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How does the app work for your students and mentors?

    The app systematises an evidence based experiential learning process for the mentees, engaging them in planning, practice, feedback and reflection loops with their mentor. The app is 'light touch' and wraps around the real world activity of the actual mentorship.


    How does the Practera platform help educators achieve great program outcomes?

    Educators who purchase Practera GO licenses for their students get free access to the Practera online platform to enrol participants, form teams and monitor progress. Our world-first AI-based experiential learning assistant helps you deliver a truly successful and engaging experience by flagging up whenever something needs your attention.

    What are licenses used for?

    You need a license for each participant that you want to enrol in your experience.

    Is there an ongoing cost if I buy licenses?

    No. Practera GO experience licenses are once-off purchases. You can simply buy more if you want to add new participants any time.

    What happens after I buy one or more licenses?

    After you made a purchase, you will receive your login credentials within 24 hours via email. You can use these to register your account, which will be pre-populated, tested and ready to be launched with your selected experience and the number of licenses you purchased. (See Step 2 above)
    After you have registered, you will have access to all Practera GO functionality and can enrol your participants anytime.

    How long will it take until I can enrol my students?

    Everything is ready to go, so you can launch in no time. We have seen successful program roll-outs within 72 hours!

    Will you help me to launch my program?

    Of course, we are committed to make you successful! Our customer success team who all have an educational background are there for you. On the administrator platform you will have 24/7 access to our support tools and chat support during Australian business hours. 

    Can I buy more licenses later?

    Yes. You can come back anytime to purchase additional licenses, which will be added to your account.

    Can I customise the experience?

    If you need to edit the experiences, or author and brand - please ask us about
    Practera Pro access to change content, the structure or the branding of the app.


    Who delivers the experience?

    In the standard Practera GO model, you deliver the entire experience. For experiences with real clients or projects, you will need to find these for your students (or let the student find them) before you can enrol your participants.
    We do offer full-service program management options where you can simply provide us with a list of students and your required type of experience and we will provide real projects, clients, mentors and delivery services.

    Is the user data secure?

    Yes. We have the highest standards for our data privacy and security. You can read our public statement about our data policy here
