Prestolee SCITT Mentors

Throughout all your teaching placements you will be supported by a specially trained school-based mentor who will provide the guidance, support and challenge needed to ensure you are meeting all of the standards for QTS. This is in addition to the support you will receive from your Classroom Teacher, your Lead Mentor and the Prestolee ITT Management Team. This guided support is central to our ITT programmes.

Our trainees are privileged to work with such fantastic mentors who set high expectations for pupil achievement, model high-quality teaching, and act as ambassadors for the profession.

Mentors play a crucial role in supporting you during your initial teacher training through to successful teacher accreditation
