The objective of this study is to develop a normative instrument for assessing the mentoring role in the South African context. The sampling frame for the study constituted the 1200 employees of a division of a large transport organisation. A convenience sample including all 1200 employees yielded 637 fully completed records (a 53% response rate). First and second level factor analyses, followed by an iterative item analysis on the scale of 26 items, yielded a seemingly robust scale with a Cronbach alpha of 0,97. The psychometric properties of the scale are further discussed.
