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 development
Throughout, 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.
