Nightingale Barcelona, Spain

Sessions of exchange between mentors in Nightingale Barcelona.
Two exchange sessions between participant mentors in Nightingale Barcelona took place last 4th and 5th February.

The sessions were boosted by two students from the Faculty of Education of University of Barcelona. The first part of the sessions consisted in discussing common topics in the mentoring relationship as the involvement of the mentee, the relationship with peers and the family involvement.

Secondly, mentors were asked to identify emotions with situations that occurred to them in the project. Guess which one was the most named, in both groups? SATISFACTION!!!
