The importance of effective mentoring

The importance of effective mentoring has been emphasised repeatedly in recent years. In 2016 National Standards for School-Based ITT Mentors were introduced. The first recommendation in the report accompanying the Standards was that: The standards, although not statutory, should be used by school-based ITT providers to strengthen the quality of support that trainees receive whilst on school placements, to create consistency within partnerships and across the ITT system in England. Our portfolio is based on these Standards.

Our portfolio system can be purchased by SCITTs to support the development of your mentors. Indicative prices can be found here.

If you subscribe to our sister site then portfolios are priced across both sites: for example, 25 trainee and 25 mentor portfolios costs £1500 + VAT.
