3 To examine the role of mentoring? To consider what is meant by ‘good mentoring’ To look more closely at the training programme and the assessment requirements as set out in the ARU school experience documentation. To consider the skills of target setting, observation and giving feedback To consider some of more likely mentoring dilemmas that might arise Aims

8 Models of mentoring TASK – Read the 11 statements and discuss how far you agree or disagree. Grade from 0 – 5. TASK – Read the 11 statements and discuss how far you agree or disagree. Grade from 0 – 5. Scale 0 = strongly agree 5 = strongly disagree Scale 0 = strongly agree 5 = strongly disagree Apprenticeship Competency Reflective Model

9 Reflective model Tomlinson (1995) describes a mentor as a ‘reflective coach’ and argues that teacher training students should be inducted into this kind of reflective practice from the onset of training by working alongside reflective practitioners who can model the reflective practitioner skills.

12 Observation, Feedback and Target Setting Part 2

13 Developing Effective Verbal Feedback Performance orientation vs learning orientation Performance orientation vs learning orientation ‘Learners with a performance orientation persist less, have more negative views about their abilities and display helplessness when the task is difficult. By contrast, those with a learning orientation show greater persistence, have more flexible views of themselves, and are more likely to work effectively in solving difficult problems. So to emphasise performance rather than learning as a goal can be counter-productive’ (Carol Dweck) ‘Learners with a performance orientation persist less, have more negative views about their abilities and display helplessness when the task is difficult. By contrast, those with a learning orientation show greater persistence, have more flexible views of themselves, and are more likely to work effectively in solving difficult problems.

14 QTS Standards ATTAINMENT ATTAINMENT By the end of their course all teachers must have met the teacher standards evidence is provided on the Standard Tracking sheet in the PDP TEACHING To provide developmental feedback and targets during the training programme. To provide developmental feedback and targets during the training programme. To assess a trainee’s attainment at, or towards, the end of the training programme To assess a trainee’s attainment at, or towards, the end of the training programme Teaching Observations - Grades EDIT

15 Learning Centred Feedback  An explicit focus on the learning that has taken place: both the pupils’ and the trainees’ both the pupils’ and the trainees’  Practices such as learners generating their own questions  Learners being asked to make sense (to themselves and to others) of what they meet  Promotion of dialogue and collaboration

19 The Weekly Mentor Meeting The weekly mentor meeting is extremely important please have a look at the format. The trainee completes this for you to sign – evidence for the PDP Have a look at the written feedback these students have received and formulate a SMART target for them based on what you have read.
