Initiation Rights: Effective induction practices for new teachers

Kay Kinder, Peter Earley

01 February 1994

This report from NFER draws on case studies of 'good practice' schools and LEAs to document the key features of effective induction for newly-qualified teachers. It includes an analysis of:

    • NQTs' training needs
    • mentoring
    • profiling
    • school induction programmes
    • the LEA's role.

It will be of great interest to all those involved in teachers' professional development both in schools (primary and secondary) and LEAs, particularly induction managers and mentors.
