Mentoring Teachers - Certificate
The teacher education program at UNH 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 NH Department of Education has also recognized the need for mentoring early-career public school teachers in its “Induction Through Mentoring Projects.” The UNH Education Department offers a Graduate Certificate Program in Mentoring Teachers to help advance the preparation of professionals in the field.
Who the certificate is designed to serve?
- Experienced teachers interesting in mentoring and the professional development of new teachers.
- Experienced teachers interested in preparing for leadership positions that require mentoring skills.
- Experienced teachers interested in exploring a graduate program in education by first earning a graduate certificate
Applications for Graduate Certificates are available through the Graduate School.
The program of study requires four courses and a total of 16 credit hours. The program focuses on the development of mentoring skills that draw upon: (1) models of adult development; (2) approaches to effective teaching; (3) an understanding of teacher supervision and assessment; and (4) strategies for problem solving, conflict resolution, and communication.
