Pupil Mentoring Pocketbook

By Bob Garvey and Kim Langridge

Teachers' Pocketbooks pound;6.99 each

These are the latest two titles in an excellent series. Susan Elkin shows how professional development has grown beyond in-service training to include school-based work and distance learning. There's an excellent chapter on the way that specialist schools should, and often do, use their expertise to the benefit of neighbours, and advice on such practicalities as building a portfolio and running a training day.

Pupil Mentoring describes and supports the practice of bringing people other than teachers into school to support pupils' learning. It takes the reader through a three-stage mentoring model of Exploration, New Understanding and Action Planning. Teachers and heads should read this book. Management of pupil mentoring is a new area of leadership, and lessons are still being learned.
