Main Audience: All mentors
Explore the tension in the varying expectations that there are on a mentor during the course of a training year, from emotional support, to role model, to assessor. We look at the diversity of skills required as a school mentor and leader of adult learning, including exploration of coaching approaches and where they can add value to learning and a variety of ways.
Discussions around approaches to managing difficult conversations with professional colleagues to ensure that progress is sustained and where appropriate is accelerated.
I have to say I think this was a very powerful session. I think there are lots of areas which I can use in my practice as a mentor.
Dates for the 2018-19 face-to-face sessions will be published later in the year. Sessions 1 and 2 are now available online at mentors.leadingthefuture.org.uk
