Due to the success of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) Mentoring courses, which run from September 2021 to February 2022, the ETF has increased the number of places offered to providers from five to seven places per provider.
Places on the Advanced Skills for Experienced Mentors course are supported by a Department for Education-funded grant of £6,000 for each eligible applicant.
Even though both courses have already begun, applications will remain open with a flexible learning approach offered to the first four weeks of both courses to allow learners to continue to join.
The first two weeks of both courses involve online learning, which can be undertaken in your own time, with a tutorial which is scheduled with a tutor. Weeks 3 and 4 involve 90-minute Zoom sessions, which must be attended.
In order to guarantee a place, please make you application as soon as possible. Further information and the application form is available from the links below:

More than 27,000 practitioners have been awarded Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status since it was first introduced in 2008. As QTLS status marks its fifteenth anniversary, applications for the current cohort remain open, closing on 30 November.
