Mentoring and Coaching under Research

Mentoring and Coaching under Research (MCUR) was carried out in 2022 and is part of the strategic initiative Mentoring under Construction, initiated by the SALTO European Solidarity Corps Resource Centre together with the Romanian National Agency for Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps. The initiative aims at building an international community of practitioners that support the development of quality in mentoring in the European Solidarity Corps programme.

The report addresses core issues like understanding mentoring and coaching, mentoring/coaching in practice, the contribution of mentoring/coaching to the project’s impact, quality in mentoring/coaching, mentor/coach competences, inclusion through mentoring/coaching, etc.

The MCuR research has been conducted by a team of three international experts, Corina Pintea, Marzena Ples and Darko Markovic, and has been supported by SALTO European Solidarity Corps and National Agencies from Romania, Austria and France.
