This was the follow on from the Mentoring Australian Apprentices Project that Sharon facilitated in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Both projects involved providing support and training to workplace mentors which in turn enabled them to support their workplace apprentices and trainees and to improve retention and completion of their qualifications. Prior to this, Sharon was Training and Development Manager for the Registered Training Organisation ‘CTIA’ and the Watermark Hotel Group. After many years in the Hospitality and Training arenas Sharon now provides consulting services to various organisations in Australia.
