This study aimed at developing a culturally responsive scheme for inducting and mentoring Emirati novice teachers. The aim of this study was to reach consensus over the different components necessary for an induction programme responsive to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) context. Utilising a modified Delphi technique, quantitative and qualitative data were collected over three rounds. The scheme shares many of the bases of induction and mentoring programmes.
