NEST list of public deliverables

NEST outcomes provide transnational learnings and offer a roadmap for potential methodologies for improving the support of novice teachers. Specifically, the knowledge generated is transferable and scalable to stakeholders seeking to adopt adaptive support for novice teachers within their contexts.

Below you can find a list of the NEST public deliverables, which you can download as they are made available. More information on each WP objectives, timelines and results is available on the WP boxes below.

The toolbox of good practices includes a selection of mentoring strategies, resources for use with teachers, and case studies of effective mentoring interventions with novice teachers in disadvantaged schools.

The NEST mentoring framework comprises two major elements: A theory of mentorship and a profile of an effective mentor. Both will be tailored to the context of supporting teachers and student learning in disadvantaged schools.

The NEST core curriculum includes the scope and sequence of mentor learning covered by the NEST intervention. The curriculum gives a structured overview of learning objectives and content, which are aligned with both the NEST mentoring approach and the desired mentor learning.
