GTP Mentor

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by forgetting1, Dec 10, 2008.

  1. Hi I am a new mentor for a GTP that is starting their GTP in Jan. This is my first time being a mentor and I obviously want to do my best for the GTP. Has anyone any advice for me as how best I can do this job or how I can get my hands on good information?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi there

    My mentor has come up with a fabulous training plan for me. I have the first bits in quite a lot of detail. I can e mail it to you if you like. I am louise.storyteller@blueyonder.co.uk Let me know if you would like a copy.

    He gives me about an hour and a half each week for a detailed tutorial where we go over my tasks (I have one per week) and what standards I have achieved. We then discuss any relevant issues. He observes me about once a fortnight. If I have an observation that is discussed at a separate time.

    I am allowed two hours per week "off" for study. This might include talking to ppl like SENCOs etc and he facilitates this.

    He is very positive and has kept me buoyed up so far. I am so tired, but always know he has a few minutes if I am unsure or worried (or excited) about something :)

    Please feel free to email me any more specific questions.

    Hey Looby,

    I would be interested in seeing that training plan!

    I don't have one at all but think that I should. What kind of tasks are you set?
