Mentor Training

Maintaining a supportive and nurturing environment is KEY to the recruitment and retention of beginning teachers. State Board Policy, TCED-016, ensures that each beginning teacher is guaranteed the support of a mentor trained on the North Carolina Mentor Standards during the crucial first years. Regional Education Facilitators are available for updated training and refreshers.

Mentor Standards:

There are five main Standards that align with the North Carolina Educators Evaluation Standards to assist mentors in their professional support for beginning teachers.
