ELSA / Learning Mentor Supervision


We have been investigating ways to ensure that ELSAs and Learning Mentors, who are working so hard in your schools, remain effective and supported. We are delighted to now be able to offer bespoke Learning Mentor Supervision from Dr Chantelle Makin and Dr Laura Grahamslaw of Psychology First.

They are able to provide supervision for the current academic year. Psychology First, Dr Chantelle Makin and her colleague Dr Laura Grahamslaw (Educational Psychologists), are fully trained in clinical supervision and have many years of experience working within the education sector and schools.  Consequently, they both have a very clear understanding of the role of a Learning Mentor and the content of the training for this role (Laura historically trained as a Learning Mentor herself!!)  Therefore, as well as LM supervision, initial LM training refreshers, and support for other members of staff can also be offered by Psychology First if required, by any school, although there may be an additional charge for this.

The very special offer to Tandridge Teaching Alliance members for supervision is £200 per Learning Mentor for one year, for half termly group supervision. I know that this will be very popular so please can you let us know who from your school you would like to include in this program. Please email Elke Starr at  info@ttatraining.co.uk  with the name of your ELSA or Learning Mentor(s) and we will confirm your place and get dates and times out to you as soon as possible.
