Parallel Paper Session
In a rapidly changing societal and educational contexts where issues of freedom, education and development are closely intertwined with professional identity and continuing professional development. The role of the mentor working with recently qualified teachers in school based contexts is explored. The study sought to investigate the degree of autonomy and freedom that mentors experienced in performing their role and it explored the challenges that they encountered with reference to that freedom. It also examined the degrees of freedom and autonomy that they gave their mentees during their development process within the induction period.
