Learning Areas

General Description

Mentoring can be both time-consuming and rewarding. Learn simple and effective strategies to make the most of your time and theirs.

1. Mentoring myths and facts
Coaching and mentoring are often used interchangeably but are very different in both definition and practice. Learn the facts so you don’t waste your time. Differentiate between your goals and reason for choosing to mentor and those of your mentee. Learn how to best build rapport and set yourself for success.

2. Understanding a coach-approach
Coaching is the fastest growing industry in the world because it gets results. Given effective mentors are those who have specific communication skills and structured framework in which to operate in (Le Cornu, 2012), coaching psychology provides the resources we need to be effective mentors. In this session we learn the science of coaching and explore simple and effective strategies that encourage reflection, insight into pedagogy and build respect, trust and collaboration.

3. Conducting effective performance appraisals
The foundation of any successful mentor program is planning. Here we plan the best way forward that is unique for you and your role at school. Whether this be using the Professional teaching standards to reflect on practice or simply supporting teaching in a specific task. We put into practice two common coaching models – GROW and SMART – to help you collectively move from good to great.
