Mentoring helps teachers experience, learn and apply their knowledge as well as sharing their knowledge and experiences to their colleagues. Although mentoring for ELT in-service teachers has not been implemented formally in Indonesia, it has become popular in Europe, America, Australia and many other countries. In the United Kingdom for instance, mentoring has become one of the required ways for teachers to learn from each other and support other teachers. By using a qualitative exploratory study, an exploration towards mentoring as a term amongst EFL teachers in Indonesia was done. The data was collected by using questionnaire and semi-structured interviews to investigate 12 educational practitioners‟ views toward mentoring. The educational practitioners consist of three trainers of in-service teachers, five lecturers of EFL pre-service teachers and four EFL secondary in-service teachers in Indonesia. The findings showed different participants‟ understandings on the term mentoring. Furthermore, the result of this study may impact further research related to the implementation of mentoring scheme as the collaborative CPD in Indonesia.
