A mentor provides direction, guidance, education, influence and support to others less experienced than themselves, with the aim of assisting the mentee with their development as a teaching practitioner. 

Studies have consistently found that the personal fulfilment of teaching and the support received in the early years of teaching were higher motivations for staying in teaching than any other factors.

Effective mentoring of early career teachers: a support guide for new teacher mentors is a free professional support resource for Australian schools and early learning centres.

It provides tips and advice on what it takes to mentor a new teacher effectively, as well as some professional learning activities, reflection questions and useful links to get new and aspiring teacher mentors started on their challenging but rewarding journey.
