Postgraduate Certificate in Mentoring (fully online) PG Cert

University of Buckingham

This is a six-month online course starting every January. It is worth 60 credits and is 100% online

From September 2021 all schools need to apply the Early Careers' Framework process to their Early Career Teachers. This requires good mentors.

This programme is a distance learning course, which comprises two 30 credit modules at Level 7 that will include covering many aspects of the Mentor Standards (DfE National Standards for school-based mentors, 2016). Examining these standards enables participants to be able to respond to demands from Ofsted regarding the quality of mentoring in their community. Looking at the Mentor Standards will be combined with rigorous academic study at Masters level, evaluating and critiquing a range of academic research relating to mentoring and relating to leadership skills and behaviours, integrating research with practice throughout. Students will be able to critically analyse, engage in and reflect on mentoring and evaluate the implications for their own educational setting. They will be expected to develop their ability to explore what it means to be a critically reflective practitioner in their work as a mentor.
