Partnership - Our mentoring program with the University of Tasmania

 Our school partners with Education at the University of Tasmania to help, support and welcome new teachers into the teaching profession.

This partnership involves pre-service teachers (mentees) being allocated to an effective practising teacher working within Christian Schools Tasmania (mentors). The mentors work within a primary school context, but pre-service teachers doing a secondary specialisation are also encouraged to be part of this worthwhile initiative.

Each participant has classroom visits, joins in whole-school events, attends staff meetings, undertakes professional learning and receives copies of Christian Education National’s publications. When they finish they receive a certificate recognising their participation and completion.

We are pleased to be able to make the journey for these teachers at the start of their careers as rewarding and meaningful as possible.
