This is the second in a series of CES resources called Access Evidence. Access Evidence summaries are written for frontline practitioners working with children and young people in different settings, including youth work, social work, schools and early years. Each summary is based on a longer review of the literature on a particular topic, and is produced together with an Advisory Group of frontline practitioners.
You will also find links to other tools, resources and information on each topic.
This new summary is about two forms of support for frontline practitioners - coaching and mentoring. The summary explains the difference between the terms, and outlines some key messages emerging from research literature about these practices.
