Action Schools! BC Mentoring

Building skills to confidently incorporate physical literacy and food literacy into your classroom and school


Educators know that skills are developed over time, with new skills built on existing ones. The Action Schools! BC hands-on mentoring program uses that approach to build the skills of classroom educators, supporting them to confidently incorporate physical literacy and food literacy in their classrooms and schools. 


Flexible Mentorship Opportunities:


Available to teachers within schools that have completed an action plan, the physical literacy and food literacy mentorships bring in experienced mentors to work with teachers to identify specific learning priorities and provide multi-session job-embedded training. 


The Physical Literacy Mentoring program provides teachers with four sessions of hands-on training. It aims to build confidence by building skills through coaching and facilitation, and by providing targeted support, guidance, tools and resources to implement the new Physical and Health Education curriculum.  


The Food Literacy Mentoring program provides schools with two hands-on sessions. It supports school teams to take a whole school approach to food literacy within their school environment with an overall goal of supporting healthy eating. Sessions can be held within or outside of the school day. 


Please email to find out how you can participate in the mentoring program.
