ATP mentor training
The ATP mentor training will be an advanced course of the Wikiversity assistant teacher program. The mentor training is recommended as mandatory tuition as a significant beneficial effect of mentor training (and mentoring) is on the side of the mentor.
Schools which have no use for mentors can qualify mentors in order to support other schools that do have use for mentors.
The mentor training is expected to become also useful for college students without prior experience as mentors but the primary audience is instructors and teachers of high school pupils. The selection of what material may be appropriate for high school pupils and what is more appropriate for instructors is currently left to the reader.
The grades intended to supply mentors are shown in this table in the teachers' handbook.
Participants should have completed the assistant teacher course or equivalent training and optionally should have completed the ATP tutor course. Some experience as assistant teacher / tutor is also recommended.
- To qualify as instructor for the assistant teacher course a mentor must have taken the ATP tutor course (Yes, the demand is higher than the required qualification of assistant teachers who educate other assistant teachers from their own grade).
- To qualify as head tutor a mentor must have taken the ATP tutor course. A head tutor is qualified to lead a group of tutors and/or assistant teachers.
- Mentor Trainer's Manual (Until there is a manual for trainers the CMAD Mentor Trainer's Manual  should be used instead.)
Learning trails 
Learning trails are permuted, annotated and enhanced collections of learning resources that may serve the needs of a special topic or goal or that may link to internal or external resources of a specific type or from certain sources in order to allow a different learning experience. Mentors can learn to appreciate that the way to learn something can make a big difference for the learner.
