Mentor Training Registration

All NJ-L2L Mentors must complte a 4-day mentor training program. Before being paired with a Resident, mentors must complete an initial 3-day training program, which is later followed by a required fourth day of mentor training approximately nine months later.

Mentor Training Days #1, #2, and #3 introduce mentors to the State’s requirements for the Residency and trains them in a research-based mentoring process that focuses on developing a supportive mentoring relationship that effectively addresses the needs of new school leaders.

Mentor Training Day #4 includes a debriefing of their mentoring experiences and activities that focus on preparing for the Year 2 Residency, specifically the mentor’s role in guiding Residents in their action research projects and development of the State-required Professional Growth Plan for Year 3 of employment, and reviewing the Summative Assessment and criteria for recommending standard principal certification.

All training sessions are held at the NJPSA training facility at 12 Centre Drive, Monroe Township, NJ. Training sessions are scheduled from 4:00 - 8:30 PM. Dinner is provided.

A $65 registration fee is required for the 4-day Mentor training. Payment is made Day 1 of the training by check or money order payable to FEA.
