The purpose of this study is to construct a mentors profile based on competencies. The sample was formed by eleven teachers who participated in an experience of training mentors proposed by the Ministry of Education and developed by a national university. These teachers completed a questionnaire and participated in a focus group. Also some novice teachers who worked with mentors were asked to participate through an interview. The results lead to identify the competencies that would be associated to a professional profile of a mentor who works in our educational context.
