Effective mentoring for history trainees: keeping the subject at the centre of learning to teach, Katharine Burn, University of Oxford 

As the range of routes into teaching has become more diverse, history teachers may find themselves acting as mentors to beginning teachers on a variety of different programmes.  This session examines the vital and distinctive contribution that history mentors make to history trainees' learning. Drawing on the wealth of ideas and resources shared by mentors in the regular Move Me On ‘problem page' of Teaching History, the session will explore some of the essential features of an effective school-based history programme and equip you with a range of strategies for tackling particular challenges.
