ATP mentor training/Fine-tuning an individual curriculum


One of the foremost goals of a mentor should be the fine-tuning of an individual curriculum. If a school does not support individual curricula or has only a very limited system of elective subjects a mentor should cooperate with other mentors and parents to improve the situation. For the purpose a mentoring organisation can be formed and can collect its own tuition fees, if necessary. An assistant teacher program can introduce tuition fees that should be available to fund mentoring goals. Parent participation can help to reduce costs and can promote community building.

Developing an appropriate individual curriculum can also involve private teachers and extracurricular activities completely unrelated to school, which should be funded by smaller groups of parents or individually by parents for their children.

Meetings with the protégéEdit

A mentor should at least meet once or twice a month with the protégé to assess the current situation, to learn about recent events and accomplishments or to discuss the development of the individual curriculum with the protégé.

Recommended reading are chapters 4 to 6 of the CMAD Mentor Trainer's Manual.[1]
