A mentoring mindset (Meddylfryd mentora)
This course, A mentoring mindset (Meddylfryd mentora), will help you to develop your understanding of effective school-based mentoring of beginner teachers, whether they are in initial teacher education (ITE) or have just qualified as a teacher. The course enables you to consider the principles of effective mentoring, and how your role may move towards coaching as the beginner teacher you are mentoring grows as a teacher.
Being a mentor is an important role as you are a teacher-educator within your school-based context. Beginner teachers must progress along a continuum of familiarisation and consolidation of principles of teaching and learning, through to autonomous practice if they are to take their place as a professional teacher. You will provide the support and challenge they need to do this.
Mentoring is a challenging but rewarding role, as you engage in reflection on your own teaching and leadership practices, and help others take their place in the community of professional and effective teachers.
