The Roles and Responsibilities  of the Support Provider



Each Credential Candidate in the EBIC Induction program is paired with a Support Provider. The role of the Support Provider in the East Bay Induction Consortium (EBIC) program is one of mentor and guide not evaluator.  Throughout the Induction process the Support Provider will assist and support the Credential Candidate in self-reflection, self-assessment of teaching practice, and will help the teacher expand their repertoire of professional practice.


The Credential Candidate’s role with the Support Provider is an important aspect of success throughout the Induction program and often fosters long-term friendships.  The Credential Candidate and his/her Support Provider will collaborate, problem-solve, plan together as colleagues, and reflect on professional practice.  The quality of these pursuits is reliant on a trusting relationship that is built on confidentiality and a commitment to the goals of the program.


Support Providers’ roles include:


  1. Coordinate additional mentoring opportunities from other expert/s, coach/es, and/or specialist/s.

  2. Develop a professional sustaining mentoring relationship with an assigned Credential Candidate.

  3. Provide support through guidance, assistance, information, and professional mentoring.

  4. Consult with, collaborate with and coach a Candidate to effective professional practice.

  5. Maintain confidentiality and discretion about the activities, reflections and information from Induction.

  6. Assist and support in understanding the California Standards for the Teaching Profession (CSTP).

  7. Ensure that all reflective conversations and documentation are non-evaluative and unbiased.

  8. Assist the Candidate in the completion of all Induction program requirements.


Support Provider responsibilities include:

  1. Collaborate on the development of the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) within sixty (60) days.

  2. Assist on the development and implementation of the Individualized Induction Plan (IIP).

  3. Coordinate the support of the Candidate and ensure sixty minutes (60) each week of mentoring activities.

  4. Attend all professional growth activities for Support Providers that include: Induction Seminars and Colloquium, Support Provider Orientation and Support Provider Foundations (on the first year as a SP).

  5. Complete the Mentor Activity Log weekly and submit three times a year: October, January and May.  

  6. Complete all program assessment documents: Reflection and Feedback forms, surveys, and/or interviews.

  7. Maintain regular communication with EBIC Leadership.  


EBIC is committed to supporting the Support Provider by providing each with a three-day Support Provider Foundations on their first or second year as a Support Provider and optional Support Provider Forums on specific mentoring skills.  The EBIC Support Provider Descriptions of Practice Reflection and Self-assessment is completed at the Support Provider Orientation at the beginning of each year by all EBIC Support Providers.  This document identifies areas of mentoring strengths or where Support Providers need more support, knowledge and skills.  EBIC plans Support Provider Forums to respond to the identified areas of needs of its Support Providers.  They receive expert guidance and support from the EBIC Leadership Team.  Each Support Provider receives a stipend per Candidate.


If a Credential Candidate feels that her/his Support Provider is hindering the ability to complete the Teacher Induction program, she/he may submit a Reassignment to a New Support Provider.  This form is available at the district Induction office or at .


At the end of each year, Support Providers are eligible to earn up to four (4) semester units for a fee.  Earned units are based on all submitted activities and/or documents received or recorded by the Colloquium.  Missing any one requirement reduces the eligible units.  Documents and/or activities completed after the Colloquium fulfill the completion of the program requirements but will not be eligible for earned university credit.  



Submit all these requirements by the Colloquium!

    • Submission of all required documents

    • Attendance at all seminars including Colloquium

    • Completion of all program surveys

    • Electronically sign and approve Mentor Activity Logs (MALs)  by Colloquium
