This seminar aims to introduce the role of the mentor to teachers who will be working in a mentor/mentee relationship for the first time. There will be a focus on the person, their career and support for individual growth and maturity through effective communication with a particular focus on reflective questioning, listening and practice.

Federation recognises the valuable role of mentoring and appreciates that the development of the mentee is greatly enhanced when supported by colleagues who are willing to share their expertise.
