Eleven Teachers Complete Induction Programme

June 16, 2016

Eleven teachers have recently completed the new teacher induction programme, a two-year programme designed to assist new teachers as they “meet the challenges of the contemporary classroom.”

Mentors are assigned to ensure that during their first two years of teaching inductees receive ongoing coaching, professional development and support.

A spokesperson said, “The foundation of the mentor programme is built on a commitment to meet the individual and collective needs of new teachers entering the teaching profession for the first time.

“Research and experience have shown that the new teacher will have numerous concerns and needs with which they will require assistance.

“The unsolicited skill of the mentor is required to affect an atmosphere of reflection where inductee and mentor can engage in identifying concerns and build upon strengths.”

Minister of Education Wayne Scott congratulated the group for completing the two-year programme, saying, “Teaching, as most in the profession know, requires a highly complex set of skills and abilities. In our fast-paced, technological society, many brand new teachers are faced with an arduous task in the classroom.”

“As Teachers, administrators and leaders we must be committed to the basic components of providing quality a curriculum while ensuring that our teachers can effectively deliver that curriculum and improving overall accountability.”
