Mentor facilitators will guide participants through inquiry that aligns with their practice in schools. These experienced facilitators will be responsive to the needs of these teachers, identifying and accessing expertise that supports their professional learning. Curriculum and effective teacher practice are addressed. Participants attending these programmes will benefit from the opportunity to share experiences and collaboratively problem solve with colleagues.

Mentors will ensure that expectations and guidelines from the Education Council are understood and support teachers to develop positive relationships with mentor/associate teachers in schools.

Participants will be supported to create, develop and maintain personal portfolios of evidence and models of reflection will be shared to support this. Teachers will be encouraged to align this with existing appraisal processes used in their schools and will work closely with the Standards for the Teaching Profession to ensure that they are prepared when applying for full registration.
