The study also identify what kind of opportunities these programs may provide for mentors and mentee and what challenges all parties may experience. The research was conducted using a qualitative research approach, with data gathered by semi-structured interviews and augmented with a paper overview of school policy and other mentoring related records. Six people were interviewed, portraying mentors and mentees.
