What you are going to learn

Provisional teacher certification and mentors learning groups

Provisionally certificated teachers in NZ are required to participate in an "Induction and Mentoring" programme in order to achieve full certification. 
For many ECE services, mentoring of PCTs is a heavy load, despite the best of intentions and desires to support their teachers.

We know that being a provisionally certificated teacher or a mentor of PCTs, requires dedication, a sound understanding of the process and time. Plenty of time!

And we also know that for many mentors and their PCTS, having the support and guidance throughout this process can make a world of difference.

That's why we have created this programme. To support both PCTS and their mentors to navigate through the induction and mentoring world successfully together.
*Join the Enspirement PTC programme today and let us do the heavy lifting for you.
This is an online programme intended to complement an organisation’s induction and mentoring (I&M) programme. It will provide some of the professional learning, professional discussions and networking opportunities expected in an induction and mentoring programme but within a group context.

Provisionally certificated teachers (PCTs) will be expected to attend all sessions and to be actively engaged in their professional growth and development between sessions. Each PCT will need to have a designated mentor responsible for supporting day to day teaching practice in their centre. 

These group sessions will be facilitated by our mentoring expert Barbara Watson (PhD).
