At the very start of any session, we recommend Mentors establish a code of conduct with the group in a warm and positive conversation suitable for the ages.
Children will use their own language but the mentor should be looking to agree the following basic understanding:
Mentors will do their best to manage behaviour of the group however parents will be asked to supervise or remove children who behave in a way that undermines the positive experience of the group as a whole.
All adults should be aware that they are role models for children.
Ask mentors for evidence of all safety precautions and procedures that you need to be confident about the safety of your child.
Have all your safety certificates, risk assessments and other details easily accessible as new parents arrive so they can inspect them easily and ask questions if necessary.
This is your platform. We are developing and growing it’s value rapidly so that parents, learners and mentors can be part of a new education system. This system minimises rules so that each person can have more freedom to teach and learn.
We invite feedback from the platform community so that we can keep improving and creating value. We think deeply about the pedagogical basis for our frameworks and believe that together we can reimagine education.We are committed to an education that helps children become free, resilient, creative human beings who lead lives of purpose and direction.
Some of the features we think you will value are the secure messaging, payment system and automated cancellation policy.
We are collecting data to create a valuable online reputation for you. We are recording how many children and which children you teach as well as data on your reviews. Digital reputations may become more important for self employed people in the future. We will also make recommendations to people in the network of the children you mentor and children with similar profiles, so that we can promote your listings.
In the future we hope to be able to make suggestions to you about how you might use your skills and knowledge to meet learning demands beyond the scope of your current listings.
Operating through the platform is important to the child so that they can build a rich portfolio that has been verified by third party mentors like you. The more data they collect the more intelligent we can be in providing educational opportunities and support for them.
