1-123 Live Webinar 
Being an effective associate teacher
Live Date: 2nd May, 2024. 1.30pm NZST
Duration: Approx. 45 min
Being an Associate Teacher (AT) is one way to make a great contribution to our profession by supporting the next generation of teachers. However, ATs often get little or no training for this important role and this can result in student teachers not getting sufficient support, guidance and challenge during their practicum experiences. Additionally, ATs have an important role to play as gatekeepers of the quality of our profession in that they sometimes have to say a student teacher doesn’t make the grade. This is something most are ill-prepared for.
This webinar will share some of the key responsibilities of being an AT and the basic mentoring strategies to ensure that you give the best possible learning experience for your student teacher on practicum.
