This Handbook is a leading source of ideas and information. It covers national and international research on schools, higher education, and disciplines within and beyond education. The editors draw together contributions and present evidence bases and alternative worldviews in which concepts are both untangled and substantiated. Unique in its coverage, this handbook maps current knowledge and understanding, values and skills underpinning educational mentoring and coaching for learning. Contributors who are leading scholars and practitioners address issues of theory and practice in school, higher education, and other educational contexts, and they set out practical applications of coaching and mentoring for practitioners and researchers. Contributors also address social justice issues, such as those involving traditional and technical forms of mentoring and coaching, democratic and accountability agendas, and institutional and historical patterns of learning.
The SAGE Handbook of Mentoring and Coaching in Education is an essential reference for practitioners, researchers, educators, and policymakers.

'I cannot think of a more comprehensive treatment of mentoring and coaching within national and international contexts than this book co-edited by Sarah Fletcher and Carol Mullen. The chapter authors have impressive scholarly and practice based knowledge and experience. This book can be used in so many different ways because of its extensive and in-depth analyses and discussion that I recommend it as a "must read"
