2. What is a Mentor?
3. What’s actually happening?
4. What’s your next step?
www.ces-schools.com

●The Teacher Journey becomes the Student Experience.

Preparatory
Training Course
GE
Adults
YL EAP ESP 1 to 1 Exam
• Institutional Support?
• Self-reflection and self study?
• Burn out and Leave the profession?
Self Reflection: Your experience
What support did you
receive when you start
teaching?
What support would you
have liked to receive?
www.ces-schools.com

initiate, organise feedback)

“We are all complex
amalgams of a range
of teacher roles”
Jack C Richards
www.ces-schools.com
But what perspective are you looking from?
●The students?
●The institution?
●Academic management?
●The teacher?
●Society?
●Agent?
●Publisher (and materials developers)?
●Accreditation body?
www.ces-schools.com
2. Mentor Roles
Apprenticeship of
Observation exercise
1. Demonstrate
2. Lead by doing
3. Focus on teachable
moments
4. Negotiated stages of
progress
www.ces-schools.com
www.ces-schools.com

Could you do
this with no
training?
Mentor Trap 1!
It takes considerable knowledge just to
realize the extent of your own ignorance.
Thomas Sowell
You don’t know everything…maybe the Mentee is
right?
www.ces-schools.com
Mentor Trap 2!
www.ces-schools.com
Evidence?
1. Is there a mentor programme/system formalised or even ad hoc
in your organisation (or in an organisation you have worked for)?
2. If so, what does the mentor typically have to do (in brief)?
3. For initial teachers, how long does the ‘mentorship’ period usually
last?
4. On what basis are mentors chosen in your organisation?
5. In your opinion, what is the point in mentoring:
●For the organisation
●For the mentee
●For the mentor
www.ces-schools.com
Key findings
1. Lack of clarity over the role
2. Little systematic support/training for ‘mentors’. Mentors are typically
‘readymade’.
3. Peer to peer ‘informal’ mentoring used (‘buddy system’)
4. Initial self reflection questionnaires as part of mentoring process
5. Onus for record keeping, etc. is on the Mentee
6. Mentor has control but not responsibility
7. Mentor is ‘first port of call’ for all queries
8. Mentorship Period (3 months typically)
9. Mentor Role at end of 3 months? Gatekeeper to further employment?
www.ces-schools.com
Next steps?
What were ours?
1. Admit that there is a problem.
2. What type of teacher do you want?
3. How can we best shape this type of teacher?
4. What would best support the teachers currently in the institution in
becoming the type of the teachers we would like them to be (while
continuing to be the type of teacher they want to be??)
5. Systematic, recorded, reflected, grounded in solid theory
www.ces-schools.com
Core Issues
1.Lack of clarity regarding Teacher Role
(Training vs Practice)
2.Lack of Clarity in Lesson Planning
(Coursebook vs Curriculum)
3.Lack of Rigour in Testing/Assessment
(Teacher vs Student expectations)
www.ces-schools.com
Core Solutions
Curriculum Redevelopment: Move towards a Behaviour-led
Curriculum.
●Culture change in approach to teaching
●Mentoring scheme to be top down and instructive until
CFD project implemented
●PDGs set up to foster ‘critical friends’, disseminate best
practice
● Future: Mentoring as ‘touch base’ activity

Observer Harrison and Killion (2007): 1. Instructional Specialist 2. Curriculum Specialist 3. Catalyst for Change 4. School Leader www.ces-schools.com
  • 6. www.ces-schools.com “We are all complex amalgams of a range of teacher roles” Jack C Richards
  • 8. But what perspective are you looking from? ●The students? ●The institution? ●Academic management? ●The teacher? ●Society? ●Agent? ●Publisher (and materials developers)? ●Accreditation body? www.ces-schools.com
  • 9. 2. Mentor Roles Apprenticeship of Observation exercise 1. Demonstrate 2. Lead by doing 3. Focus on teachable moments 4. Negotiated stages of progress www.ces-schools.com

  • 12. Mentor Trap 1! It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance. Thomas Sowell You don’t know everything…maybe the Mentee is right? www.ces-schools.com
  • 14. Evidence? 1. Is there a mentor programme/system formalised or even ad hoc in your organisation (or in an organisation you have worked for)? 2. If so, what does the mentor typically have to do (in brief)? 3. For initial teachers, how long does the ‘mentorship’ period usually last? 4. On what basis are mentors chosen in your organisation? 5. In your opinion, what is the point in mentoring: ●For the organisation ●For the mentee ●For the mentor www.ces-schools.com
  • 15. Key findings 1. Lack of clarity over the role 2. Little systematic support/training for ‘mentors’. Mentors are typically ‘readymade’. 3. Peer to peer ‘informal’ mentoring used (‘buddy system’) 4. Initial self reflection questionnaires as part of mentoring process 5. Onus for record keeping, etc. is on the Mentee 6. Mentor has control but not responsibility 7. Mentor is ‘first port of call’ for all queries 8. Mentorship Period (3 months typically) 9. Mentor Role at end of 3 months? Gatekeeper to further employment? www.ces-schools.com
  • 16. Next steps? What were ours? 1. Admit that there is a problem. 2. What type of teacher do you want? 3. How can we best shape this type of teacher? 4. What would best support the teachers currently in the institution in becoming the type of the teachers we would like them to be (while continuing to be the type of teacher they want to be??) 5. Systematic, recorded, reflected, grounded in solid theory www.ces-schools.com
  • 17. Core Issues 1.Lack of clarity regarding Teacher Role (Training vs Practice) 2.Lack of Clarity in Lesson Planning (Coursebook vs Curriculum) 3.Lack of Rigour in Testing/Assessment (Teacher vs Student expectations) www.ces-schools.com
  • 18. Core Solutions Curriculum Redevelopment: Move towards a Behaviour-led Curriculum. ●Culture change in approach to teaching ●Mentoring scheme to be top down and instructive until CFD project implemented ●PDGs set up to foster ‘critical friends’, disseminate best practice ● Future: Mentoring as ‘touch base’ activity www.ces-schools.com
