Issues in mentoring

Kerry, Trevor; Mayes, Ann Shelton, 1953-; Open University

As the initial training of teachers becomes increasingly school-based, and as schools and colleges develop formal induction programmes for their newly qualified teachers, the role of the teacher mentor is fast becoming a pivotal one in teacher education. Individual sections look at mentoring as it relates to:-* Initial Training* Induction* Assessment* Whole institution staff developmentThroughout, the emphasis is on the ways in which mentoring contributes at all points in the continuum of professional development. Anyone involved in mentoring in any setting - from the primary school to the adult education college - will find this book indispensable as a guide to reflection and a spur to action
