The Reading Partnership Mentor

At Reading we train teachers who become reflective professionals able to secure the very best for all children. We support them to be resilient, creative and inclusive. With the highest expectations of learning, progress and development, they inspire children to become confident, active citizens who are able to cope with the fast-moving demands of the 21st century.

We are delighted that you will be working with us as a Reading Partnership Mentor.

'It's a journey that you take as well - the same as thestudent is on a journey - lots of reflection that you have to do and a lot that you learn as you go along and you develop with time - its exciting, challenging, demanding but worthwhile'Reading Partnership Mentor
