Teaching Standards

General Description

Secondary teachers face great challenges in carrying out their role of educating and developing students. To add to these challenges, they may also be required to act as mentors to student teachers. This requires excellent mentoring skills and a capacity to build an appropriate learning relationship over time. These are workplace learning skills which they may not have acquired during their own development as teachers.

The nationally Certified Mentoring program provides experienced teachers with the necessary skills to build this relationship, and to develop important skills in student teachers.
