This chapter aims to support mentor in considering the evidence to underpin their practice. There are a number of mentoring models which a mentor could adopt in order to support the growth and development of a beginning teacher. Attempts have been made to categorise different approaches to mentoring; for example, Maynard and Furlong suggested that there are three categories of mentoring: the apprentice model, the competence model and the reflective model. The apprenticeship model argues that the skills of being a teacher are best learned by supervised practice, with guidance from imitation of experienced practitioners. David Clutterbuck's model of developmental mentoring suggests that an effective mentor wants to draw on all four of the 'helping to learn' styles. Daloz argues that a combination of high challenge and high support needs to be offered by one as the mentor for a beginning teacher to learn effectively and to 'grow'.
