LEEDS' 244 primary schools are getting 300 learning mentors - more than any other city. The first 230 mentors finish their 12-day intensive training this week, and a further 70 will begin training next month. Education Leeds, which took over education services from Leeds City Council in April following a critical Ofsted report, is overseeing the project. The training covers issues such as behaviour management, child protection, educational psychology, health and safety, literacy and numeracy and counselling skills.
