ECE Mentor Development Programme

Professional development (PD) Auckland

Posted: 31 January 2018
Notice reference #: 1H9hHP

Effective mentoring is a powerful enabler of effective teaching and improvement of practice. It requires a specific set of skills and attributes in addition to those of a good teacher. Using strategies that can be applied in the mentoring role, this programme develops the skills, knowledge and dispositions of mentoring and is suitable for those supporting provisionally certificated teachers (PCTs) or student teachers as well as those working with their teams to develop effective practice. The expectation is that participants take the skills developed in the facilitated sessions and put them into practice between workshops.

This programme will:

  • explain the requirements of the Education Council for induction and mentoring of PCTs and for maintenance of full certification
  • share a range of strategies, including inquiry, to develop an effective induction and mentoring programme and learning culture in your centre
  • outline how teachers may be supported to effectively and efficiently evidence their practice against the Standards for the Teaching Profession
  • build the skills of observation, feedback, learning conversations, facilitative questioning, assessing evidence and goal setting
  • strengthen reflective practice and share strategies to support its development in others
