Training and Mentoring
Shadio (1996) believes that the heart of mentorship comes from "a commitment to education, a hope for its future, and a respect for those who enter into its community."
Across all our programme offerings, ITARI ensures a hands-on experiential-blended learning model with emphasis on microteaching groups, group and individual mentoring, and modelling. We offer a multi-dimensional process for guiding, teaching, influencing, and supporting a beginning teacher. Mentoring at ITARI is a cognitive process aimed at the mentor being able to demonstrate to the trainees a range of competencies by stimulating reflections, probing with the right questions, constructive feedback, and allowing the trainees to observe. ITARI is thus able to establish a learner’s curve for our trainees and helps them understand the stages of teacher development within the context of how adults learn.
