This study investigated the nature of relationships among student teachers, university supervisors, and cooperating teachers in one UAE teacher education program. The findings reveal that most student teachers preferred the collaborative approach to supervision. The cooperating teachers most often used collaborative supervision with student teachers. In contrast, the university supervisors used directive approach. Moreover, unlike cooperating teachers, university supervisors had negative opinions of the abilities of student teachers in this program.

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. However, three differences are evident: formative and summative assessments are carried out by a committee, the programme should only last for one year, and passing the induction programme should be enough – no teaching licence exam is required.
