Mentoring is a professional practice encompassing knowledge and skills that must be learned and grounded by a shared understanding of what “effective mentoring” means and entails.
ACMentoring professional development investigates key principles, techniques and processes involved in establishing effective mentoring programs for educators in schools, early learning centres and higher education settings.
By making the tacit aspects of mentoring explicit, ACUMentoring professional development focuses on how to manage the most challenging aspects of the mentoring process and set the conditions for sustainable long-term change in mentees.
ACUMentoring professional development is accredited with teacher registration authorities in Australia. Hours completed can be claimed as continuing professional development hours required to maintain teacher registration.
Completion of ACUMentoring professional development provides a pathway to further study at the Master of Education level at ACU.
