Mentor Pathways

Certification/Level 7 Accreditation Pathways:

The Faculty of Education & Children’s Services see good quality mentoring through effective coaching and mentoring as an essential to ensuring our Associate Teachers are involved in effective school partnerships.  These partnerships are developmental,  where mentors understand the processes and procedures involved in Initial Teacher Education, where they also understand that in order to facilitate this learning experience and work with our tutors and ATs they need to be constantly updating and redefining their own training expertise.  Experience has therefore led us to the conclusion that the good intentions behind these initiatives are often undermined by the lack of training or a proper framework for the provision of effective School Based Learning.  As a consequence the following pathways have been tested and refined over the last two years.
