MTA is designed for point-of-need assistance and advice. It does not replace ongoing mentoring, or support. MTA is not intended to replace the formal and informal supports provided to beginning teachers through their schools, systems, and colleagues. MTA offers support to beginning teachers in situations where access to supports may be limited. For example:
- casual relief/replacement teachers
- teachers in rural and remote areas
- early childhood teachers.
MTA maintains privacy and confidentiality, and advice provided is without obligation, consistent with a code of ethics, stated policies and procedures, and specific terms of service.
