Successful Induction for New Teachers

Second Edition
  • Sara Bubb - Institute of Education, University of London, UK

May 2014 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The first year in teaching will be rewarding and stimulating, but it will also be hard and stressful for most NQTs. A good induction program benefits not only NQTs but also those who support and assess them. Good teachers make good schools - but good schools also make good teachers. In this book, NQT  development expert Dr Sara Bubb, explains clearly, accessibly and concisely how to have a successful induction year. It's written both for new teachers themselves and those who support, monitor and assess them: headteachers, induction tutors, coordinators and mentors. 

It covers key areas including:

  • induction regulations
  • what NQTs are entitled to
  • meeting the teachers' standards
  • building relationships
  • managing work load
  • emotional resilience
  • professional development

This is the essential guide on how to successfully complete the NQT year!

Although this book focuses most intensively on the situation in England (and so also Wales, by and large), there is much in it that could be illuminating for trainers working in other lands. A lot is packed into this light, very portable and extremely reader-friendly book.
