MENTOR Magazine is India's most respected print magazine focused on School Leadership, Principals and Educators. From the past 5 years, MENTOR has established itself as a leading voice where educators work together to reinstate their position to improve the educational system.

The last few decades have witnessed a significant change in the demands on the schooling system. The Indian Education space has hardly any platforms or forums for educationists and educational researchers to share their learning and experiences with the Edutopia. In our attempt to converge and diffuse the good practices be it local or transcontinental, MENTOR Magazine felt the need to create a platform in the educational arena for educators to get together and work towards enhancing their skills and knowledge.

MENTOR Magazine organised its first conclave titled Excellence in School Education in November 2011, which witnessed exchange of ideas and learning on various issues and addressed concerns to improve the quality of education imparted to children.

This year, MENTOR Magazine is bringing forth the MENTOR Conclave 2012 from the 16th - 18th November 2012, at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The MENTOR Conclave 2012 aims to provide a multinational platform, where educators, practitioners and researchers across the globe can come together and share with their fellow-mates experiences, innovations and the latest trends in education, with an aim to learn from each other.
