Customised professional learning and mentoring


uChoose gives you control over your professional learning pathway. Our experienced facilitators will mentor you through your own tailored learning journey.

"Provided me with focus questions to consider, and provided me with an outside-the-school perspective — valuable that the mentor did not know the school previously as fresh eyes and perspective."

Jason Miles, Principal, Kaiapoi North School
– working with Rebbecca Sweeney

uChoose is ideal for educators who want to:

  • Lead change and build leadership practices
  • Develop strategies and solutions for specific situations and challenges
  • Explore an area of specialisation, for example e-learning, modern learning practices, cultural responsiveness, and much more
  • Develop your own mentoring or facilitation skills
  • Meet your appraisal goals or collect, select and reflect on a body of evidence for appraisal
  • Design, plan, implement and evaluate your own inquiry.

Based on your learning requirements, CORE will allocate an experienced mentor who you’ll work closely with and with whom you'll ‘meet’ online once a month.

Your mentor will identify and share resources that will help extend your skills and your thinking and provide ongoing support.

You’ll be able to extend your learning network as we’ll give you the opportunity and support to participate in an online community of likeminded professionals.

What does the total commitment look like?

Over 3, 6 or 12 months, you will spend:

"The mentoring has strengthened my belief in myself and my team, I am much more likely to provide feedback to the team and to encourage each teacher to articulate their beliefs as they are very valued."
