Developing mentoring excellence

A short, intensive course via distance learning that will improve practice and add value for those who mentor others in any profession or walk of life. A standalone module that will give you 20 credits against a University of Reading master's in Education.

This module is intended to support you with your professional development in a range of mentoring roles as well as your wider professional practice. Entry requirements: you should be able to provide evidence of successful study at level 6.

Cost £800 (At April 2018). For more details, a chat about this module or to start applying, please contact Teresa Wilson.

You will explore mentoring from a variety of perspectives, starting from a definition of mentoring and moving on to consider theoretical models, best practice within mentoring and common issues.

A range of contexts will be considered, including initial teacher education, as well as other settings including museums, adult education environments and care settings. You will draw on your own experiences of mentoring in making links with current theory.

This is a standalone module that complements our well established MA in Education programme. On successful completion students will be awarded 20 credits at Masters level. These credits can contribute to our MA in Education programme.
