The HTAV Mentoring Network aims to link early-career teachers, new heads of department and/or first-time teachers of History with highly experienced advisers. The advisers, known as Mentors, will work with Mentees to offer classroom and administrative advice, to clarify course content and to offer guidance in areas such as assessment and reporting. NB. The program is primarily designed for HTAV members. If you wish to be mentored but are not an HTAV member, a nominal fee is payable.
