2.1 Consider how ready your mentee is to engage in the mentoring process

At the start of the process, it is important to establish the beginner teacher’s expectations of you as a mentor and to consider how these align to your own expectations. Beginner teachers do not arrive as a ‘blank slate’ – while you will have clear ideas about the expectations for teaching and learning in your school, they will also be bringing in their own personal dispositions and perhaps those of their university’s community of practice too. Making the expectations of both parties clear will set the relationship off well.
