Mentoring Teachers Certificate
The Teacher Education Program works with approximately 150 “cooperating teachers” and more than 25 supervisors each year in its full-year internship program. Mentoring is a crucial element in the preparation of effective teachers, as well as in the transition from teacher preparation programs to the first years of teaching. The N.H. Department of Education has also recognized the need for mentoring early-career public school teachers in its “Induction Through Mentoring Projects.” The UNH Department of Education proposes to offer a graduate certificate program in mentoring teachers to help advance the preparation of professionals in the field. For more information please visit the Mentoring Teachers website .
This certificate is designed to serve:
- Experience teachers interested in the mentoring and the professional development of new teachers.
- Experience teachers interested in preparing for leadership positions that require mentoring skills.
- Experience teachers interested in exploring a graduate program in education by first earning a graduate certificate.
Please visit the Graduate School website for detailed instructions about applying to the certificate program.
