Guidelines for Induction and Mentoring and Mentor Teachers
Mentoring is an essential part of the teaching tradition in New Zealand. There are guidelines for mentors and professional leaders to follow, to help them develop and implement a high quality induction and mentoring programme.
The Guidelines for Induction and Mentoring and Mentor Teachers have been in use since 2011, and were developed following extensive research and a national pilot programme.
The Guidelines aim to help professional leaders, mentor teachers and provisionally registered teachers learn the key skills and attributes required for effective mentoring, and to support great mentor teachers.
Mentoring resources were developed for the national programme of workshops that introduced the Guidelines.

If you’re already a mentor teacher and would like to extend your skills, there are a range of courses you could consider.
