In this, the second official episode from Thijm Podcast, Simon welcomes Kevin van Osch and Colette Brouns from the ATC, Marloes Racké from Groot Goyland, and Karl Bates from the ISH to discuss what they perceive the role of the mentor to be in a VO school.
This episode is recorded in both Dutch and English.
We hear about how the role has developed over the years; the challenges they face; the kind of support that is essential - and provide advice on what to do if you're a new mentor.
This is an excellent and fun 35 minutes of listening - with lots great tips and points to consider for all mentors and would-be mentors across our schools!
