Postgraduate Certificate in Educational Mentoring

(Part-time evening)

2 semester - Maximum number of students: 100 

The Faculty of Education is proposing the implementation of school-based mentoring during next scholastic year (2017-2018).  The aim is for a number of Teacher Mentors to support and follow student-teachers during their field placement in schools during their Master in Teaching and Learning course. 

These Teacher Mentors will provide an ongoing, well-informed and reassuring presence in the student-teachers’ professional life during their field placement and Block Practicum so as to create the space for professional interactions, as and when required, that would help safeguard the interests of the students in class and contribute to the professional development of prospective teachers.  An ongoing dialogue between the Teacher Mentor and the student-teacher / s will help ensure the development of a community of practice and initiate student-teachers in their journey of becoming reflective practitioners.
