Welcome to the Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone (TEMZ) offering from the National Association of School-Based Teacher Trainers (NASBTT).
The Teacher Educator and Mentoring Zone is dedicated to supporting the professional learning and development of Teacher Educators individually and as a profession.
We believe it is vital to recognise the role of a Teacher Educator as a professional who is instrumental to the development of early career teachers.
We are determined to support, develop and empower mentors by providing accessible guidance in key areas of mentoring. We refer to this as the Professional Framework for Teacher Educators which is broken down into 19 tailored areas. The advice is easily accessible and designed to be a starting point for 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 in a short space of time.
The dedicated TEMZ area provides a pool of resources, helpful tips and advice, links to relevant articles, further reading and videos, handy printable guides and access to our dedicated online learning CPD modules.
TEMZ will continue to evolve and develop to ensure we are providing relevant and up-to-date content for Teacher Educators and mentors.
"My favourite mentor unleased my passions, channeled my energy, guided my growth and encouraged my success."
