Instructional Need
Over the last few years there has been a rapid increase in the number of new teachers being hired each
year at the ABC Institute in Anytown, India.
During their first year of teaching new teachers are usually paired with experienced teachers, who
informally act as their mentors. These mentor teachers have no formal training in mentoring, have no
specific mentoring guidelines to follow and no defined roles and responsibilities.
A lot of teachers have raised concerns during the annual faculty conference about the effectiveness of the
current mentoring program, where new teachers have expressed a need for better support and guidance
from mentor teachers and mentor teachers have expressed a need for formal mentor training.
Mentor teachers must have the knowledge and skills to identify and respond to new teacher needs. Also to
enhance mentor teachers commitment to delivering effective support, it is important to provide them
formal mentor training as a prerequisite to mentoring.
Delivery options
This will be a Face-to-Face instruction, conducted as a two day workshop. There may be an online
component blended with it, for activities and assessments that could be performed after the workshop is
over, at the learners' own pace.
