The mentor training course for ECEC leaders started today. The course will build a mentoring model to support leadership, starting out in a leadership position and professional development in early childhood education and care. Mentoring also supports experienced professionals. The course highlights learning good supervision practices as well as the changing demands of ECEC work and leadership and the expertise and identity of a leader.
Alongside an individual’s professional development, mentoring also benefits their team, working community and organisation. The course includes nine face-to-face training days and participants also start their own mentoring work. The course will continue into the spring of 2019.
