Mentoring - igniting sparks or diminishing them?
“I love being a coach, and a mentor especially in teaching. I love the fact that trainees arrive to school, or on various teaching programmes, full of enthusiasm, and passion to make a difference to our young people. There’s a spark that needs oxygen adding to, in order fuel a blazing burning desire that can drive them and their momentum…. and then they leave. Why is that? What is it that causes this spark that should have been ignited to just fizzle out?”
