Description

Celebrating Teacher Educators

Staffordshire University on 23rd April 2020

As a provider collective we are very grateful to the Stoke-on-Trent Opportunity Area for their support for Teacher Educators, (Mentors). Effective professional learning supports not only recruitment, but also retention, as so many colleagues value this essential role. Effective Teacher Educators enhance the progress that our pupils make through their own high quality teaching and by enabling their colleagues to be even better informed by engaging them with the increasing evidence-based that underpins our growing community of professional knowledge.
