What can mentoring do for your school?
A Head who has a good mentor feels better able to do his/her job, as they have an outlet for their worries and concerns. Being able to tap in to advice from someone who has been in their shoes means that they feel more in control and are better able to deal with complex situations because they have someone with whom they can talk things through. It also means that they remain true to their vision and purpose, clear about their goals and what they are trying to achieve because their mentor helps them remain focussed, reminds them of the bigger picture when the day-to-day pressures seem overwhelming.
So how does this help the school? Every school needs a good leader and every teacher wants to work in a good school. Good leadership, where the Head is
will bring about good education for children … which is what we’re all about!
