New Teacher Mentoring Project
The New Teacher Mentoring Project is a partnership project of the BC Teacher’s Federation, UBC Faculty of Education, and the BC Superintendent’s Association, funded through a grant from the Ministry of Education. The project goal is to provide a coherent, research-based, and sustainable system of support for teachers in their early years throughout the province. Since the project began in the Spring of 2012, the project has provided financial and consultative support in building a quality mentorship program in 12 school districts across the province. The project also facilitates workshops for mentors and early career teachers designed to build effective, learning-focused relationships. The project sponsors a summer institute in mentor leadership held at UBC in July.
