“Heathfield School are delighted with the experiences we have had with our trainees this year and hope to continue this close partnership with Worcester University.”Emma White - Lead Mentor at Heathfield School and Day Nursery. Kidderminster
Working as a middle leader or mentor enables colleagues from our partnership schools to host University of Worcester ITT trainees. These rewarding leadership roles bring many benefits to both the trainee and middle leader/mentor.
Middle leaders and mentors receive continual support from an experienced university tutor and a monthly partnership newsletter. Mentoring and leadership also provides many opportunities for self-development, through mentor training and reflecting on the Teachers' Standards. Trainees benefit from the expertise and guidance of their middle leaders/mentors, supporting the trainees to become outstanding practitioners.
