Welcome to NASBTT's Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone (TEMZ)

This dedicated resource has been designed to support the professional learning and development of Teacher Educators and Mentors both individually and collectively as a profession.

We believe it is vital to recognise the role of the Teacher Educator as a professional who is instrumental to the development of early career teachers.

Our Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone (TEMZ) includes mentoring and subject resources.

Access is free of charge for all Teacher Educators and Mentors in all settings.

Based on our Professional Framework for Teacher Educators, our mentoring resources provide dedicated guidance, helpful tips and advice, articles, further reading, videos and handy printable guides.

Resources are easily accessible and designed to be a starting point for Teacher Educators and mentors who are keen to develop their own practice and knowledge. The content is built on existing theory and research, as well as first-hand practical advice that can be implemented quickly.

Led by our subject specialists, our subject resources provide Teacher Educators with resources and information in the primary and secondary National Curriculum subjects.

Each subject area includes informative resources, recommended reading, instructional videos, useful articles, blogs, podcasts, current topical newsfeed, good practice ideas, professional learning opportunities and much more.
