General description on research questions, objectives and theoretical framework
The aim of this study was to pilot a Terroir of Mentoring Schematic (Chambers, 2015) as a mentor training protocol for mentor-mentee dyads. The presence of experienced mentors in formative field experiences is a vital component in ensuring meaningful work-based learning for pre-service teachers (McIntyre et al., 2005). The ‘Terroir of Mentoring Schematic’ (ToMS) (Chambers, 2012) draws on a multilevel ecological systems perspective of mentoring (Bronfenbrenner, 1979, Chandler et al., 2011). It incorporates the following: Level One: The Ontogenic System (psychological and demographic individual characteristics (ibid)); Level Two: The Microsystem: (the immediate context within which a protégé or mentor interacts (ibid)); Level Three: The Macrosystem (Broader societal influences on the ontogenic and microsystems, (ibid)). This links directly with the conference theme: Education and Transition: Contribution from Educational Research as it focuses on the transition from trainee teacher to the full teaching role.
