It also explores how this perception has shaped the role of mentor teacher and prospective teachers' activities during their Teaching Practice program in teacher training schools. Qualitative approach is used in this study. Interviews were conducted to mentor teachers at primary and junior secondary training school. The findings show that mentor teachers have received less preparation to conduct their role as a mentor.
