The book examines the extent to which staff responsible for mentoring student-teachers in schools were qualified and experienced to effectively perform their mentoring duties. This is because it was unclear whether staff responsible for mentoring student-teachers during School Experience had the rightful training and skills to effectively discharge their duties. Interview guides and questionnaires were used to collect data from mentors and student-teachers in schools. The study revealed that mentors lacked sufficient training and experience to provide quality mentoring to student-teachers as only 10% of mentors had training in mentoring. The study concluded that generally mentors showed good mentoring characteristics and relationships with student-teachers although these relationships were not supported by sufficient training and experience in mentoring. One key challenge that mentors faced was lack of mentor´s guides to help them with their work. This study recommended a college-based training for mentors and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes for student-teachers.
