The Impact of Quality Assurance on Mentor Training in Initial Teacher Education Partnerships: A UK Perspective
Youens, Bernadette; Bailey, Mary
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n32 Jul 2004
Over the last two decades, reforms to initial teacher education in England have formalised the partnership agreements between universities and partner schools, and increased the emphasis on quality assurance of the system. These changes are discussed within the context the University of Nottingham Partnership and in relation to the role of its school-based mentorship programme in particular. The processes for collecting routine, but formal evaluation data for quality assurance purposes are described. As the partnership has matured, positive relationships between university tutors and mentors have enabled mentors to develop within a less formal framework, and thereby to improve the quality of the course.
