This book assists mentors in developing their mentoring skills, offering guidance needed to support the development of beginning teachers in early years, primary and secondary schools in the Scottish education system, as well as supporting all teachers in their career-long professional learning.

Based on research and evidence, Mentoring Teachers in Scotland explores and discusses the knowledge, skills and understanding that underpin mentoring that is responsive to individual mentees' needs.
