Päivi Kupila, the Mentoring in ECEC Project Manager, participated in a seminar organised by the Teacher Student Union of Finland (SOOL), which discussed the benefits and principles of peer group mentoring. In addition to Päivi, the researchers’ perspective was also represented by Professor Hannu Heikkinen, who studies teachers’ peer group mentoring.
