NAT Support for Student Teachers

This element of the NAT project will focus on supporting students from target groups that are enrolled in our initial teacher education programme.

Support will include:


Placement support

Mentors: These mentors will be teachers who have been teaching for 5-10 years and can provide guidance to students while on placement and hopefully well into their careers. 

Placement Bursaries: Students may apply for our placement bursaries. Please keep an eye out for funding calls. 

Resources Centre: We have resources available for students registered with the NAT programme. These include a laminator, a colour printer, a guillotine, a white board, a lap top and basic stationary. These items are for use in lesson or assignment preparation. 


Application Support

We will hold workshops during the year to assist students with applying for funding from SUSI. These workshops will be facilitated by the Student Budgeting Advice Service specifically for NAT students.

Skills workshops

In collaboration with the UCC Skills Lab and Student Health and Wellbeing we hope to run several workshops over teh course of the year.
