This user friendly book gets the reader to make the link between theory and practice. The scenarios are engaging – you can almost see the student and mentor in practice!

'This text is an excellent resource for those preparing to mentor and would also serve well as an informative reference textbook for those already in the mentorship role.'

This is the Third Edition of a very-well established text. It brings together the practice of mentorship and supervision with sound discussion of the theory and research evidence... An established and updated resource for academics, this book is essential reading for those learning to mentor and for those already in a mentorship role it will help to update your practice.

This book is laid out well with chapters that explore a number of pertinent topics such as effective mentorship, learning theories, assessment and evaluating mentorship. Each chapter includes outcomes, an introduction to the topic and a selection of activities that enable the reader to apply or explore the concepts of mentorship to the clinical setting through self-directed learning tasks, reflective points and case studies.

Useful for post-reg students undertaking SLAiP courses although more generalised with mostly Nursing examples rather than Midwifery. Course is run 3 times per year

This is an excellent resource for mentors and learning environment leads. I will be recommending it to mentors. However I will point out that although the title says mentoring and supervision in healthcare it is predominately weighted towards student nurses - there are a lot of references to the NMC which is not the governing body of all pre-registration courses.
