The strategic aims of the MENTOR Project are to ensure beginning teachers build an understanding of curriculum, standards, pedagogy, and how to meet students’ needs. It is to facilitate the natural development of beginning teachers by supporting them in their own settings and ensuring they have the assistance they need to be successful in their everyday job.
The MENTOR project is designed to prepare teachers experienced in their profession to become mentors for beginning teachers. Moreover, school leaders, other teachers and personnel in secondary and high schools, and last but not least – students - can also benefit from the mentoring program, which is supposed to result in improvements in efficiency of teaching, students’ achievement and teachers’ job satisfaction.
These aims will be achieved by providing the teachers, who have worked long in their profession, with the knowledge and skills needed to become the mentors for beginning teachers. The model of mentoring between teachers will be elaborated on the basis of the desk and questionnaires researches and tested by the teachers in their schools through the whole school year. The model will include trainings for teachers who will become mentors.
