Μπουμπουλέντρα, Νίκη-Πωλίνα/ Boumpoulentra, Niki-Polina

The main topic of this project is the theoretical and empirical approach concerning the mentoring in accordance with its impact in the professional development of teachers. In the theoretical approach the terms of Mentor, mentoring and professional development are defined and their interrelation is studied. Alongside with a brief historical summary, the Greek reality is analyzed according to the relevant legislation. Then, the need for professional development is discussed as well as the need for teacher support and guidance by the Mentor. Moreover, the mentoral relationship follows, accompanied by its benefits and its evolution stages, while the content of the Mentor education is discussed. This part concludes with some observations and conclusions that derive from the theoretical framework. In the empirical approach, the survey on the mentoring is presented, which was carried out in order to show the extent to which it contributes in the professional development of the teachers. 90 Directors / Assistant Directors and teachers from schools of Primary education answered the questionnaire which was the methodological tool. The project is completed with the analysis of the survey results using diagrams and tables and the conclusions drawn.
