The third level of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers requires that Highly Accomplished Teachers be able to demonstrate with evidence that they are able to support and assist less experienced colleagues with all aspects of their professional knowledge, practice and professional engagement.
Our mentoring workshops can help teachers understand and implement the BOSTES professional experience framework (2015).
The modules aim to:
• promote to all staff the crucial importance of rigorous professional experience supervision
• recognise outstanding teachers who are contributing to the development of future generations of outstanding teachers
• provide school staff with access to professional learning to better prepare them for their role in mentoring and assessing
• provide access for school staff to undertake professional learning in mentoring and assessing.
All three workshops draw from a range of resources including research articles, policy documents, pro-formas and video excerpts. The interactive and collaborative tasks allow participants the opportunity to practise the skills of mentoring in an enjoyable learning environment.
