Mentor orientation focuses on the mindshift from instructor to mentor, the Quest Forward vision for mentoring, and the role of student-specific feedback in the learning flow. Orientation workshops also help mentors understand how the Quest!™ app supports the mentoring process, and how mentors use it to support active discovery-driven learning for their students.
Coaching and Support
After the orientation, mentors typically have access to a Lead Mentor in their Academy, school, or program, and also receive support from one of Opportunity Education’s Mentor Coaches.
Our coaches are experienced teachers who provide app support, provide access to resources, and offer deeper insights into all aspects of Quest Forward Learning coaching.
We provide a wide range of mentoring resources in our Help Center, to which all Quest Forward mentors have access 24×7.
Opportunity Education also provides mentor certification for teachers who have worked in a Quest Forward mentor role for at least one year.
