This was a PRT and Mentor Workshop day provided by Mau Ki Te Ako. It covered the requirements (PTC’s) that need to met by a beginning teacher in order to gain your registration. It also outlined the role of the the mentor and what is expected of them.
I now have a clearer understanding of how I can ensure that I am meeting the PTC’s and the type of evidence I should be collecting and were best to store it.
I came away deciding that appraisal connector, supported with the use of google docs, provides me with great platform on which I can track my progress as a beginning teacher.
One thing I found interesting was the different stages that beginning teachers or teachers go through over a year.
Next steps as a beginning teacher:
– Clearly outline how we are going to record my progress
– Establish goals for me to work towards
– Outline areas that I want to focus on
– Establish my inquiry and begin recording it
