Provisional Teacher Certification & Mentors Learning Groups
Commencing: February 2023
Duration: 7 live Zoom group sessions of approximately 90 minutes each
Provisionally certificated teachers in New Zealand are required to participate in an "Induction and Mentoring" programme in order to achieve full certification. For many ECE services, mentoring of PCT's is a heavy load, despite the best intentions and desires to support their teachers.

We know that being a provisionally certificated teacher or a mentor of PCT's requires dedication, a sound understanding of the process, and time. Plenty of time! We also know that having the support and guidance throughout this process can make a world of difference. That is why we have created this programme - to support both PCT's and their mentors to navigate through induction and mentoring successfully together.

This is an online programme intended to complement an organisation’s induction and mentoring programme. It will provide some of the professional learning, professional discussions and networking opportunities expected in an induction and mentoring programme within a group context.

Provisionally certificated teachers will be expected to attend all sessions and to be actively engaged in their professional growth and development between sessions. PCT's will need to have a designated mentor responsible for supporting day-to-day teaching practice in their centre.
