The purpose of this editorial is to introduce the inaugural issue of the International Journal of Mentoring and Coaching in Education (IJMCE), as well as to set the scene for the current and future issues of the journal.
This editorial simply introduces the journal and its first issue. The paper sets the scene by which the journal was conceived and the context in which it aims to operate. It then move on to briefly describe the visions of IJMCE, the theories and practices of mentoring and coaching and the definitions and implications that the journal will have for policy makers.
It is found that IJMCE will offer diverse definitions of mentoring and coaching in the course of publishing three issues per year, each comprising five articles.
The editorial introduces five original manuscripts from several authors who have undertaken some brilliant research, which contributes greatly to the mentoring and coaching community.
