This Research in Practice Series title focuses on the mentoring relationship, describing what it is and how it can be effectively built and sustained. It also explores:
- what mentoring is not
- why it is important in early childhood education and care
- what it looks like in practice
- how mentoring can be used to reflect on practice and build ethical relationships.
The book provides practical suggestions on how to document meetings and agreed goals. Furthermore, the book has links to the national frameworks so that establishing and improving mentoring skills can be documented in the Quality Improvement Plan.
