The second edition includes new chapters on school-based training routes, dealing with their advantages and challenges, and on developing trainees through risk taking. All chapters have been updated to refer to the new National Standards for school-based initial teacher training (ITT) mentors.Offering practical strategies and direct problem-solving to help you move promising trainees quickly beyond mere competence, it explores: giving effective feedback; emotional intelligence and developing and maintaining relationships; collaborative working; dealing with critical incidents; developing reflective practice; what to do if relationships break down; the relationship between coaching and mentoring; mentoring newly qualified teachers (NQTs) as well as trainees. Illustrated with the experiences of real trainees, How to be a Brilliant Mentor can be dipped into for innovative mentoring ideas or read from cover to cover as a short enjoyable course which will give you added confidence in your mentoring role.
