The course is primarily aimed at experienced teachers who will support beginner colleagues or will be responsible for a group of teachers in their institutions. This course can function for them as the first step in developing as a teacher educator or a trainer, while providing teacher development opportunities for them in their own professional practice.

The Mentor Course can also be beneficial for department heads and managers who wish to establish a more supportive communication style and promote professional development.

  • All our online courses consist of on-demand input videos and downloadable resources, interactive exercises, tasks for the classroom and face-to-face interviews and feedback sessions.

Aims:

The course intends to give insights into:

  • to provide teachers with a basic level of awareness and skills in mentoring teachers in an educational context
  • to demonstrate how mentor roles are different from those of a principal, a supervisor or an inspector.
  • to clarify how an institution may benefit from having a mentor system.
  • to demonstrate how focused observation can open up areas of a lesson.
  • to develop a range of observation tools which help the observer to collect evidence for discussion.
  • to see the difference between observation, interpretation and judgement.
  • to clarify the difference between summative and formative feedback.
