Abstract

This guide identifies good practice in relation to mentoring in initial training, and offers advice on how to achieve it. Following the recent report on initial teacher training which specifically identified mentoring support for teaching practice as a general weakness across most programmes,this timely book suggests ways of supporting mentors more effectively, partnership working, strategic planning, training, professional development,the provision of materials and resources. It argues that mentors should key members of the teams delivering teacher training programmes,based in different provider organisations, and demonstrates the value regionally-managed systems for building and maintaining ‘communities practice’ through professional networks for trainers and mentors.
