skill level
Suitable for new graduates and mentors.
This short course is intended for new graduates embarking on their journey as provisionally certificated teachers. Mentor teachers would also find value in this course, especially if participating with the teacher they support.

There is a lot of misinformation circulating in the ECE sector about what is required of a provisionally certificated teacher. Barbara Watson, the presenter of this course investigated induction and mentoring programmes in her PhD studies and has also worked alongside the Teaching Council delivering workshops that covered certification requirements. She will bring clarity to the confusion and uncertainty you may be feeling as you step into this next stage of your career.

In this course we will examine the purpose of the provisional certification period and the expectations of the induction and mentoring (I&M) programme your centre is required to provide for you. You will learn about your role, and that of your mentor, in the I&M programme and what will be required of you before becoming a fully certificated teacher.
This course is for you if;

  • You are a new graduate about to begin your teacher registration journey with questions about what you are mean to be doing as a provisionally certificated teacher (PCT).
  • You are a mentor teacher who wants to have a good understanding of what is required in an induction and mentoring program.
  • You are a new PCT who is feeling confused about what is required of you to get fully registered.
