Mentor Support

Expert 1-to-1 Mentor Support for All Trainees

Our Mentor Team

Generate Teaching Hub School Based Teacher Training has formed a team of expert and trained mentors to work alongside each Trainee in placement and for the whole academic year. Providing a range of professionals and a consistent voice who each understand the Trainee’s development and context.

The 4 roles are:

  • Lead Mentors
  • School based Mentors
  • Class Based Mentors
  • Academic Mentors

Lead Mentors

From our core team, all Trainees on our School Based Teacher Training programme are assigned to a Lead Mentor. This experienced teacher stays with the Trainee throughout the year, providing a consistent professional voice and support to the Trainee through their placement.

The Lead Mentor has an excellent understanding of the requirements of each placement. They ensure the monitoring and moderating of the Trainee across all placements. This provides consistency and a high level of developmental support.

This role is known as a Lead Mentor.

School Based Mentors

In addition to a Lead Mentor from our team, in every placement there is a School Based Mentors for each Trainee. These are suitably experienced practitioners who will support all Trainee Teachers whilst on placement in a school. They provide another trusted professional on site to whom a Trainee can contact for advice, guidance and insight. This School Based Mentor coordinates and moderates the experience of trainees in school.

Every Trainee is assigned to a class in a school. The class teacher is called a Class Mentor. They are responsible for guiding and supporting Trainees during their placements whilst they are in the classroom. They meet weekly with the Trainee to discuss professional development, agree planning, set targets and arrange observations of lessons.

This support structure forms a cycle of continued improvement and evidence for the final assessment towards the Teachers’ Standards for Qualified Teacher Status.

LHU Mentors
