Mentors play a crucial role in the development of novice teachers and those in the early stages of their careers. What makes a good mentor? In 2016 the Teaching Schools Council identified key criteria and the government set these out as National Standards for School-Based Mentors.
Using the National Standards we have designed a mentor development tool that helps mentors to audit their current practice, target areas for improvement and upload evidence relevant to their mentoring skills.
Our customers provide the criteria and our trackers monitor progress against these.
