Resources for Mentees

Welcome to the ‘Mentees’ section of the Mentoring Training Hub. Whether you are an early career practitioner, or already have years of experience behind you, mentoring can support you to develop and grow throughout your career. The resources in this mentee space will enable you to get the most from your mentoring relationship. Like other kinds of teaching and learning, mentoring should be a learning conversation. Therefore, as a mentee you can strongly influence how you experience mentoring.

FE mentoring framework and guides for mentees

Mentoring and coaching have the potential to be one of the most effective forms of professional development for teachers and trainers, including early career practitioners. However, in order to be effective, there are a series of practices which need to be enacted – these are outlined in the following FE mentoring framework and accompanying guide for mentees – which we hope you find useful:

The guide for mentees broadly follows a chronological approach from the beginning to the end of your mentee-mentor relationship. You can use it in different ways: you could read it in a single sitting, or you can dip in and out according to your needs at any given time. Each chapter will begin with a series of reflective questions and end with some key recommendations for you to try.
