Coaching and Mentoring for Academic Development

by Kay Guccione and Steve Hutchinson

Reviewed by Michelle Underwood (Education Directors)

For our March Review, the reviewer chose to produce an audio, which you can listen to here.

"The book is for anyone who is involved in or wants to create supportive learning conversations.

Coaching and mentoring can support and disseminate a bank of collective knowledge which can be purposefully utilised and shared across staff."

  – Michelle Underwood

"Both coaching and mentoring can help broaden viewpoints and give people a sense of belonging, help gain confidence, having their voice heard, increasing their trust. The book goes into the benefits of coaching and mentoring and how these might look in various situations."
