Abstract


The institution of Mentor is not well-known in Greek educational reality since it has recently been introduced.
Many teachers face it with skepticism however, it should be noted that the mentor is not only a teacher but also a
student partner. He does not compete and do not interfere in the teachers’ work, he simply facilitates and guides

teachers of different specialties in four schools. The qualitative analysis of the questionnaires revealed that the
teachers are more receptive to a possible collaboration with the mentor.
