•    Critically analyse national concepts and projects comparing them to others at an international level.

•    Be able to start planning your own mentoring project ideas (either student-student, teacher-students, teacher-teacher, other) with the idea of improving relationships school and leading to improved academic success.

•    Understand and be able to talk about ethical considerations — especially as proposed by EMCC (European Mentoring & Coaching Council).

•    Develop 21st Century Skills and personal development of both mentors and mentees.

Important note:

ASYNCHRONOUS WORK — the course contains a discussion forum which runs each week after class, which requires participation on the weekend. 

You may have 1 hour of other reading or research, and 1 hour (spread over Saturday and Sunday) to interact with each other. The forum discussion ends two days before the next class. 

(Remember, if the course were face-to-face, there would probably be a class on the weekend).

If you have doubts or questions about the requirements, you can email me:
