Principalship Training through Mentoring: The Singapore Experience

Journal of Educational Administration

ISSN: 0957-8234

Article publication date: 1 April 1993


Presents some observations from both mentors and protégés who have been involved in a formal mentoring programme at the National Institute of Education in Singapore. Data showed that the mentor/protégé relationship is best initiated in an informal environment away from the school, that mentors should clearly communicate their expectations, that mentoring relationships move through developmental and interpersonal stages, and that the benefits of the relationship are reciprocal for the mentor, protégé, the organization, and the system. Presents some suggestions for mentoring programmes in their early stages of development.
