Mentoring at the ETF

The Department for Education (DfE) funded the ETF from 2020 to 2023 to develop high quality mentoring training to support teachers from early careers onwards.

At the ETF, we advocate an approach to mentoring and coaching of teachers in the Further Education and Training sector which has organisational commitment to it and a broader learning culture, and is:   

  • developmental and nurturing in nature   
  • rooted in collaboration and support   
  • adaptable to the individual needs of the mentee/coachee.
