The Professional Coordinating Mentor (PCM) can have a huge impact, not just on the quality of teacher training and mentoring, but also on the life of the school.
Our series of online sessions aims to explore some of the possibilities for developing this key role in schools, particularly in light of the two-year early career teacher (ECT) status.
Sessions are led by current PCMs and school leaders. You can view some example sessions below, introduced and chaired by Rob Fonseca, Head of Initial Teacher Education (ITE).
- PCMs talk one: Pauline Tobierre, Beacon High School on Professional Studies
- PCMs talk two: Carley Stephenson, Elizabeth Garratt Anderson School on What makes a good mentor?
- PCMs talk three: Liza Hooper, New Wave Federation on Instructional Coaching
- PCMs talk four: Stephen O’Brien, Southwold Primary School on Using Expert Staff
- PCMs talk five: Felicia Lord-Attivor, West Ham CofE Primary on Being a Hands-on PCM
