LARC Mentoring Programme

Liverpool Arts and Regeneration Consortium (LARC) has recently commissioned research into the level of interest amongst the cultural sector’s emerging leaders and managers in mentoring as a tool for personal and management development. The research results showed a high level of support for the introduction of a mentoring programme for staff in both the eight LARC organisations and also other cultural organisations in Liverpool.


LARC is therefore contracting Business in the Arts:North West (BIA:NW), who carried out the research, to deliver a mentoring programme for the cultural sector in Liverpool. BIA:NW has been running a mentoring programme for over five years with a very high rate of success and the organisation also delivers mentoring for other organisations including the National Culture Forum and the Northwest Regional Development Agency.


The LARC programme will deliver 40 mentoring relations through to the end of the Liverpool Thrive programme in June 2011. Mentors will be especially recruited, not only from the cultural sector, but also from the business sector and will be drawn from Liverpool and beyond. The programme will be structured to follow excellent quality standards and is designed to support those with management responsibilities, ideally both financial and for staff, freelancers or volunteers.
