dc.description.abstract PCF10 Sub-theme: Inspiring Innovations [POSTER] // "Mentoring is important for learner success. Effective mentoring requires the acquisition of specific and adequate competencies (knowledge, skills and dispositions) for mentors to perform their roles towards their mentees in a confident, coherent and consistent manner. However, our experiences have shown the existence of skills gaps and divergent mentoring practices across schools in the Mauritian context. // To address the shortcomings, we designed and developed a novel competency framework for mentoring that is part of a micro-credential for online learning and as capacity building initiative. The framework seeks to bring a shift in the way mentoring is practiced in Mauritius, with focus on reciprocal learning. // The mentoring competency framework (MCF) consists of four professional domains underpinned by six key drivers, namely, research, rethink, respond, re-align, revisit and reflect, which we consider as critical elements to inform effective mentoring practices. This poster describes each domain of the MCF. The first domain, Professional Identity, focuses on a commitment of mentors to engage with theories on mentoring and reflection on mentoring practices. The second one, Professional Knowledge and Skills, lays emphasis on subject-specific competencies. The third and fourth domains are Professional Relationships and Dispositions which highlight the importance of collaboration, communication, problem-solving, values and ethics." // Paper ID 9197
