Teacher Induction

Induction (educator)
Induction is the support and guidance provided to novice teachers and school administrators in the early stages of their careers. Induction encompasses orientation to the workplace, socialization, mentoring, and guidance through beginning teacher practice.

Comprehensive, high-quality induction consists of several key elements:
    a multi-year program
    rigorous mentor selection and training
    subject-area pairing of mentors and beginning educators
    sufficient time for mentors to meet with and observe new educators
    formative assessment that assists beginning educators to advance along a continuum of professional growth.

The New Teacher Center induction model is nationally recognized in the United States for its promotion of new educator development and its impact on teacher retention and student learning.
