First Edition - Working papers from CollectivED
The Hub for Mentoring and Coaching is a newly established Research and Practice Centre based in the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University.
The first issue of CollectivEd Working Papers represents the lived experiences of researchers and practitioners working to support the professional learning and practice development of teachers and other education staff at all stages of their career. Please do read them and use them to provoke your own reflections and action. You won’t agree with them all, but they should make you think.
