Pilot Professional Mentoring Program for Early Childhood Teachers

2011-2014

The Pilot Professional Mentoring Program for Early Childhood Teachers is delivered by Victoria University and Deakin University on behalf of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The Program has been developed for beginning and/or professionally isolated early childhood teachers who want to receive professional mentoring. This program provides a valuable professional development opportunity for both service providers and individuals.

Program Structure for Mentees

  • Shared Learning Day 1

  • Shared Learning Day 2

  • Celebration Half Day

  • On-line Forums

Each Mentee is assigned a Mentor, with Mentors being assigned up to 5 Mentees to support throughout the program. Where possible Mentors are matched to Mentees in their local areas so there is an awareness of the impact of local issues/or in similar settings. However, Mentors may also be matched with Mentees in different service environments, and should be willing to adapt their approach to the particular challenges of the mentee's setting.
