This Handbook is a leading source of ideas and information on mentoring and coaching. It covers national and international research on schools, higher education, and disciplines within and beyond education. The editors draw together contributions and present evidence bases and alternative worldviews in which concepts are both untangled and substantiated. Unique in its coverage, it maps current knowledge and understanding, and values and skills underpinning educational mentoring and coaching for learning. Contributors set out practical applications of coaching and mentoring for practitioners and researchers and also address social justice issues, such as those involving traditional and technical forms of mentoring and coaching, democratic and accountability agendas, and institutional and historical patterns of learning.
