Become a Mentor

When you were starting out in teaching, did you know how to plan and structure a scheme of work?
If your subject knowledge was lacking in certain areas, did you have someone you could approach who could offer support or guidance on how to manage this?

Things that may seem straightforward to you now could be challenging and overwhelming to someone new to teaching or who is teaching a new specification.  Additionally, schools tend to have just one specialist Textile teacher, which can sometimes leave them feeling disconnected and lacking in confidence when it comes to planning and creating new ideas.

Teachers in situations such as this often value the opportunity to share thoughts and inspirations with like-minded individuals who are willing to listen and understand them.   If you are an experienced Textiles teacher or industry professional able to offer some support, guidance and encouragement to other teachers, then please use the following link to complete the questionnaire:

Find a Mentor

Are you struggling to plan and deliver a lesson or scheme of work?  Is your subject knowledge lacking in areas or do you just feel that you might benefit from having someone to share your ideas with and who can give you a confidence boost.

Our Textile mentors are friendly individuals willing to offer Textile teachers support, encouragement and guidance throughout their teaching experiences; if this is something you feel you may benefit from, then please use the following link to complete the questionnaire:

Please note, our mentors are experienced professionals who have freely and kindly volunteered their time to support you.  They are not trained professionals in mentorship. Their role is not to make decisions for you or to provide you with their own examples, but to offer encouragement for your own positive choices, promote high self-esteem, support academic achievements and introduce new ideas.

We are focused as a support group for Textile teachers. The mission of the Textile Skills Centre is simply ‘better textiles teaching’.
