Pilot Professional Mentoring Program for Early Childhood Teachers


Applications for Early Childhood Mentees are being accepted for the new Pilot Professional Mentoring Program for Early Childhood Teachers, 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 or professionally isolated early childhood teachers who would like to receive professional mentoring. This program provides a valuable professional development opportunity for both services and individuals.

Program Structure for Mentees

  • Shared Learning Day 1

  • Shared Learning Day 2

  • Celebration Half Day

  • On-line Forums

Each Mentee will be assigned a Mentor, with Mentors being assigned by to 5 Mentees to support throughout the program. Where possible Mentors will be matched to Mentees in their local areas so there will be 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.
