As a key part of the NSW Government’s Great Teaching, Inspired Learning reforms, 8 new teaching mentors have been appointed to support beginning temporary teachers at 38 schools across NSW.

NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell said the new roles would increase quality teaching in NSW public schools.

“A great teacher is the most important in-school influence on student performance,” O’Farrell said.

“Everybody starts their career somewhere, which is why it is so important to support our new temporary teachers with experienced mentors”.

The mentors will support schools with high numbers of beginner teachers in the Liverpool, Fairfield, Holroyd, and Warringah areas. In regional NSW, schools in Tamworth, Gunnedah, Wagga Wagga and Bathurst will be supported as part of the scheme.

The teacher mentors will support new temporary teachers in preparing, delivering and assessing classwork and in managing the classroom. The will also assist new teachers to achieve accreditation at the ‘Proficient’ level of professional standards for teachers, through demonstration lessons and observations.

Teacher mentors will begin work at the start of term two.
