"Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be."
Eric Parsloe, The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring
Good mentoring practice empowers students by encouraging and supporting the successful achievement of goals, and adapting to the academic, social, political and cultural mores of the institution.
