Overview

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 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!

Editorial Reviews

Tessa Woodward
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.
Teacher Development - Stephanie Kurtts
'Bubb provides excellent mentoring and strategies for both the new teacher to follow as well those who will be providing the induction support...What is extremely helpful about this information being in one book is that each group can become familiar with expectations, strategies for success, and general information about the teaching profession and the induction experience. Bubb demystifies a process that for many must seem a bureaucratic nightmare'
