Mentoring Resource Library

Welcome to Cognition Learning Group’s Mentoring Resource Library, which provides the Further Education (FE) sector with access to free and on-demand resources.

At present, the Mentoring Resource Library contains a mentoring framework and four supporting guides for mentors, mentees, mentoring coordinators and leaders/managers. These valuable resources have been designed to support FE practitioners in understanding their role in the professional development of teachers and trainers. In time, the Mentoring Resource Library will contain printer-friendly versions and mentoring resources produced by FE providers.

Please note: These resources are available under the terms of the Open Government License (OGL).

If you have any questions about the Mentoring Resource Library, or if you want to share your work with the wider sector, please contact us at
