Induction - the first year of a teacher's career - is a crucial, and potentially difficult, period. This book is the work of a well-known and highly respected team of experts on the subject and is based on a comprehensive nationwide research project into the implementation and effectiveness of the latest statutory regulations covering induction in England. It includes not only findings from this research, but also numerous ideas from, and examples of, best practice. Including case studies from primary and secondary schools, in the state and private sectors, this book raises awareness of the complexities entailed in inducting new teachers, addresses the issues, dilemmas and problems of induction and celebrates the achievements of the national induction policy. Its insights provide an invaluable guide to the effective implementation of induction in schools.
