Abstrakt

The study examines the practices of mentoring of new teachers in Finland and Australia.
•The study's aim was to reflect on how mentors and mentees understood mentoring as a social practice.
•Five mentoring categories emerged: opening up, facilitating, counselling, guiding and leading.
•Educators need to be more explicit about differing aims, goals and values of mentoring.
•Good mentoring is about balancing communicative and strategic action.
