How do you ensure that students stay on track?

March 15, 2021

Each student has an individual study plan that is regularly updated, monitored and shared with the student’s family. A key role of the Mentor teacher is to ensure that students are staying on track, and to offer support to ensure that commitments are maintained. Mentor teachers are also trained to offer specific support for students in time management.
