Abstract:
This study has investigated the role of learning mentoring within one secondary school with a focus on developing an understanding of practice, professional identity and policy enactment at an institutional level. Learning mentors were first introduced in schools through the Excellence in Cities initiative in 1999, guided by the principle of helping pupils overcome barriers to learning. However, from the published literature little is known about the role of learning mentors in schools, especially in the period following the cessation of the Excellence in Cities programme in 2006. This practitioner based research was therefore devised to enhance current knowledge of learning mentors activity.
