Abstract

In this paper, we research a recently set up engineering students' teacher mentoring programme with special interest on teacher mentors' expectations and experiences from the point of view of self-efficacy and motivation. We aim to have an insight in the teacher mentors' met and non-met expectations and see if this has effect on the teacher mentors' motivation and expectations of the outcomes of the mentoring programme. We also examine how beneficial the teacher mentors consider the programme to be to the students and how this is linked to their motivation.
