Teacher Certification Folder how to and sorting out mentoring

Note: Don't waste money on folders that sellers may call blue books or guides. The Teaching Council don't really like these. The Teaching Council guidelines are clear and it's easy to set up your own folder and follow the process. The article below explains how.

Becoming a fully certified teacher is not just a ‘tick off the list’, it is a way in which you can become a better teacher. Investing time and effort into your teacher certification will ensure that your teaching practise will positively influence learners, colleagues and ECE as a whole.

  1. Why do I need to get certificated?
  2. What is involved?
  3. How should I set up my folder and what about integrating this with an online system for appraisal processes (e.g. Storypark)?

As a new graduate starting out in your career in early childhood education, gaining full teacher certification is not always straightforward.

For many of you, the brief lecture or two outlining teacher certification and what is required of you may not lead you to the understanding of the importance of becoming, and remaining a certificated early childhood professional.

The following article answers many of the questions hanging over provisionally certificated teachers’ heads and serves to provide some clarity around what is expected of you on your journey towards full certification and maintaining your certification throughout your career.

Whatever you do - don't rush out and waste good money buying a book on keeping a folder and how to do this from anyone.
