Professional Partner Program
PSEA and PUSD have designed a mentoring program to provide individualized support, encourage learning, and promote high levels of performance for new, probationary and struggling PSEA classified employees. It’s called the Professional Partner Program.
It is not uncommon for employees to find themselves in a new assignment without a predecessor to guide them in the intricacies of the job. An employee may be new to the District or an existing employee may need to learn additional skills. Fellow co-workers may or may not be able to assist. That’s where the Professional Partner Program can help.
The Professional Partner Program connects employees to an experienced and trained mentor, known as the “Partner.”
Every PSEA classified employee is eligible to request a Partner.
