  4. Some words about mentoring Mentoring goes beyond just 'information' ... it is the transfer of wisdom and real-life experience from someone who has walked the path before. Political mentoring is significantly different from traditional mentoring: as elected representatives you must decide how to serve the needs of your electorate. There is no management-defined way to perform your roles and, although you need to know certain rules and procedures, guidance from experienced mentors is often needed. WFE believes that political mentoring will enhance your Masterclass training and provide benefits such as increased confidence and resilience.
