Introductory course: Chartered Teacher (Mentor) Status Volume Purchase
Practising school-based mentors with mentoring responsibility (eligible practising classroom teachers and middle leaders may opt to register for the Chartered Teacher pathway and eligible practising school leaders may opt to undertake the Chartered Teacher (Leadership) pathway instead).
Chartered Teacher (Mentor) Status is a professional accreditation that provides formal recognition to highly accomplished school-based mentors with mentoring responsibility who have attained an advanced standard of practice. Chartered Teacher (Mentors) are recognised for evidence-informed, high-quality teaching and mentoring practice, benefiting their mentees, their school, and the children and young people they teach. The role of the mentor may vary depending on its context. Typically mentors will be employed as a classroom teacher or leader, and will have been allocated a specific mentoring responsibility. This might include mentoring as part of initial teacher training, the Early Career Framework, or mentoring to support continued professional growth. It does not necessarily include individuals undertaking broader activities associated with induction or mentoring, for example, those with line manager or induction co-ordinator or link tutor roles. To work towards Chartered Teacher (Mentor) Status, you must first register as a candidate with the Chartered College of Teaching. You will get access to our online Chartered Teacher (Mentor) candidate community and detailed guidance and content to guide you through your Chartered journey.
