Course description

The Bureau for Development of Education and the British Council are organising a Mentor Development course to prepare 16 English language state school teachers to take on a mentoring role. The course is suitable for teachers who have not had any mentoring experience and for those who have also done some mentoring and would like to update and develop their skills.

The course will focus on the following areas:

1. Who can be a mentor, what it is and why it is important

2. Mentoring roles and activities and techniques for setting goals

3. Stages in the mentoring process

4. How to create effective relationships

5. Managing agendas and meetings; setting up effective mentoring agreements.

We highly recommend the course for English language teachers who are interested, motivated and committed and who have had some experience or are interested in mentoring.
