Aspirational training to achieve inspirational teachers with pupils’ learning and well-being at the heart of our partnership
A cornerstone of the partnership is the professional preparation for roles associated with working in ITE. In the partnership, there are a number of mentor training courses, which aim to provide a range of different professional development opportunities for those with varying levels of experience of working in ITE. All courses are underpinned by the National Mentor Standards (2016) and are based on a set of beliefs and values, which have been developed jointly over a period of time. Importantly mentor training is seen as ‘working with colleagues’ from school to build on what is, in some cases, substantial experience of working with students in initial teacher education. It is increasingly apparent that mentoring is a core professional characteristic with transferable skills to induction tutoring, performance management and coaching. The focus on mentoring and coaching in the progression of national standards for teachers reinforces this assertion.
No fee is charged for the courses, which are delivered remotely over two twilights via Microsoft Teams. Where an individual school (or group of schools) has 8 or more teachers requiring mentor training the University may be able to deliver the course at a local level. Please contact your Partnership Tutor (UPT) or University Partnership Lead (UPL) for further details.
