Meet the Mentors

In July 2022, following a rigorous selection process, 15 Mentors were contracted to work with OISESA. The Mentors provide online training for schools to explain the self-study process and to answer any questions schools may have. 

This is followed by a three-day in-person onsite visit to each school, on the dates stipulated by OISESA, to validate the findings of the Self-Study Report and verify the school’s rating alignment with the Standards & Indicators. Mentors conduct interviews, hold focus groups, and visit a small selection of classes to better understand the school’s educational programme.

“We were grateful to have an engaged, knowledgeable, and dedicated mentor for whom children and schools are clearly very important. We appreciate the fact that many practical solutions were offered as opposed to challenges simply being highlighted.”
