This literature review contributes to the activities of the CRC for Rail Innovation’s
Workforce Development Program by reviewing current issues and developments in the areas of formal mentoring and workplace coaching practice in Australia and internationally - informing the development of a national framework for the Rail Industry. The review features commentary on emerging practices in mentoring and coaching within a wider strategy on human resource development and highlights the differences between each activity. Despite the increasing popularity of mentoring and coaching, the review considers a range of ethical and organisational issues surrounding professionalisation and the need for good-practice standards.
