The article is in three parts. The first, based on survey data, looks at the extent of and the provision for development for mentors and those interested in mentoring. The second part is a discussion about ideas on learning and their relationship to mentoring. It draws on some issues raised by the survey material and highlights the need for a mentor development based on specific contexts and a learner‐centred approach. The third element of the article offers a development programme for mentors devised and used by the authors.
