Months of entry
This course enables you to gain knowledge and understanding of mentoring beginning teachers through a reflective examination of your own practice as well as others'. Through an exploration of a range of mentoring and coaching models, you will develop your professional mentoring skills and a personal theory of action for mentoring.
The impact of this course goes far beyond the participating teacher; the development of their practice impacts on their beginning teachers' professional development and, ultimately, their classroom practice.
Alongside this element of the course, which is rooted in practice, there is a structured programme of taught sessions and activities designed to offer a theoretical perspective and critical reflections on how best mentoring practices can enhance the development of both the beginning teacher and the mentor.
This course aims to:
- promote your learning through the development of knowledge, skills and understanding of mentoring practice with beginning teachers
- provide opportunities to develop critical reflective practice
- encourage the critical understanding of research, evidence and practice in the broad field of mentoring beginning teachers
- support your capacity to design and conduct inquiries into your own and others' professional practice
