The TSAA have 12 newly trained Mentors to assist School Business Mangers across the State. In August 2020 our Mentors completed a training program facilitated by Claudia Butler from Frameworks for Change.
The primary purpose of the mentoring program is to offer support to newly appointed SBM’s or those who are returning to the role following an extended absence. This is an important transition time in people’s careers and the availability of advice and support from a mentor can make a huge difference to a mentee’s confidence, competence and effectiveness in the early days of her/his new role.
This program will supplement, but not replace, other support programs such as support from the Department Business Operational Advisors, normal in-school induction and information days.
