This book is a user friendly practical and theoretical guide to the processes involved in effective mentoring. It is written for all those involved in sport and physical education who seek to use mentoring to support learning. It offers the reader a guide to the mentoring process by bringing theories and pedagogical practices of mentoring to 'life' using the voices and experience of mentors and mentees in physical education and sport contexts.
