Mentoring and coaching for professionals: a study of the research evidence

Client: TDA | NFER Contact: Pippa Lord

The Training and Development Agency for Schools (TDA) commissioned the NFER to conduct a desk based review into mentoring and coaching. The research focused on the nature of approaches to, and impact of, mentoring and coaching in both schools and social care, and considered the role local authorities play in promoting it.

The review involved a combination of an audit of evidence from library database searches, website searches and information requested from key organisations. A small number of publications were then selected for full review.

Time scale: May 2008 - October 2008
