Preparing Teachers for Professional Learning: Is There a Future for Teacher Education in New Teacher Induction?
In this article, the authors explore which factors support or constrain professional learning during initial years of teaching. The findings reveal that novice teachers generally experienced a positive welcome into their schools and the support of well-meaning colleagues. The majority of the new teachers perceive their initial induction to be useful and, in particular, they credit mentoring with assisting their transition into teaching. The authors conclude that providing opportunities for the new teacher to observe other teachers and to be observed by a mentor emerged as central tasks of learning to teach for these new teachers.
