Keynote Speaker: Rachel Lofthouse, Leeds Beckett University

Mentoring is very much part of this landscape. Rachel is a practicing teaching educator, as well as a researcher. Her interest starts with student teachers, but extends to teachers and educators at all career stages and in all sectors. Rachel has founded a new university Research and Practice Centre ‘CollectivEd: The Hub for Mentoring and Coaching’. She can be followed on twitter at @DrRLofthouse.
