The DFE is committed to the concept of school-based training for ITT students. The use of schoolteachers as the school-based expert to assist in the training of the student has given rise to the re-introduction, after 100 years, of the mentor. The use of mentors in the secondary schools has already started with students currently spending more than 60% of their training in the classroom. There are plans to expand this into the primary sector. In preparation for this move there are currently several experimental schemes in progress. The biggest of these is based at Beford known as the TEAM project funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. The need for a definitive model of the primary mentor is urgent and the members of the TEAM (Teacher Education and Mentorship) are closest to that objective. The book brings together the research findings of the project, each chapter being written by a course team member.
