This webinar will focus on the considerations and steps involved in creating a teacher development programme of mentoring for senior teaching staff. The practice of mentoring in education is often associated with novice teachers and this is where a lot of institutions tend to focus their mentoring programme. Teachers who have a number of years experience are often not given the same direction and support as newer teachers, and this is can create issues like stagnation and teacher burn-out.
Mentoring for more experienced teachers involves a process of ghost observations based on agreed guidelines and criteria. The Eaquals Teacher Development Framework can be used as a clear framework to guide this programme. This webinar will look at considerations necessary to implement such a programme, especially looking at how to make it as teacher-centred as possible and to empower the teacher to reflect and assess their own teaching effectively.
