Abstract

This evaluation of the mentorship programme of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), is a part fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of a Postgraduate Diploma in Monitoring and Evaluation Methods course undertaken at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. The University of Education, Winneba (UEW) is a higher education institution mandated by the Act that established it to train teachers for the country’s formal education sector. In line with this mandate, the University adopted the model that is made up of a 3-year on campus theory-based and one-year off-campus school based. The one-year school-based experience is referred to as the Student Internship Programme (SIP). This is an intensive school-based student teaching-learning experience, which provides a structured, supervised and clinical experience for the student-teacher. The conceptual underpinnings of this programme is that teachers are supposed to be reflective decision makers who facilitate students’ learning by reflecting on their practice, assess and improve their teaching behaviours.
