An excellent summary of historical context and current research understanding. May adopt as core text for 17/18 cohort. Nicely presented in a logical and easy to follow manner written in accessible language without losing the integrity of the source materials. Significant attention given to critique and opening up of the debates around coaching and mentoring with some very useful parallels drawn between what are often portrayed as conflicting disciplines.
A very useful text that will be included in module development over the coming year.
