Knowledge, experience and generosity are a powerful combination. No matter what side of the conversation you’re on, mentoring can help you grow, progress and fulfil your potential.
That’s why we’re expanding our mentoring schemes to support more teachers.
Mentoring is a professional relationship in which an experienced teacher helps a colleague in the early stages of their career to develop and progress by supporting them as they identify key issues and work towards goals.
With understanding and encouragement, mentors share their skills, experience and knowledge so that their mentees feel confident addressing a wide range of discussion topics. The result should be empowered teachers who are inspired to take the necessary steps towards solutions.
Our mentoring schemes for teachers have been running since 2017, building on the expertise we’ve developed running similar schemes for our members. We’ve trained experienced chemistry teachers, paired them with early career chemistry teachers and supported the ongoing relationship.
We currently have two teacher mentoring schemes running:
