Evolving practice through responsive professional partnerships

 

Customised Professional Mentoring

UChoose is Customised Professional Mentoring that gives Early Childhood practitioners, teachers, and school leaders control over their professional learning pathway - in other words participants work with a mentor through their own tailored learning journey.

UChoose is ideal if you want to:

  • Lead change and build leadership practices

  • Develop strategies and solutions for specific situations and challenges


  • Explore an area of specialisation, for example, eLearning, modern learning practices, cultural responsiveness, and much more

  • Develop your own mentoring or facilitation skills

  • Meet your appraisal goals or collect, select and reflect on a body of evidence for appraisal

  • Design, plan, implement, evaluate your own inquiry.

How would the UChoose programme work for you?

To add a little more detail to what is on the CORE UChoose page: in practical terms you  would work closely with a specially selected mentor, with whom you would meet online once a month for approximately sixty minutes (or twice a month for 30 mins each time).

Your UChoose mentor will be able to offer support exactly when you need it, as well as identifying and sharing resources that will help extend your skills and thinking. You also have the opportunity to participate in this online community of likeminded professionals.

Ka tautokohia koe e tō kaihāpai i te wā e hiahiatia ana, ka mutu ka tautohu, ka tiri rauemi e pakari kē atu ō pūkenga, ō whakaaro.  Ka whai wāhi hoki koe ki te hapori pae tukutuku me ētahi mātanga e rite nei ngā whakaaro ki ōu.
