Scope and Method of Study. The purpose of the evaluation study was to determine the effectiveness of the Belize Primary School Teacher Induction Program through the perceptions of three participant groups; newly qualified teachers, their mentors, and their principals. Evaluation methods were used, including a researcher developed survey. Findings and Conclusions. The findings indicated the induction training program was widely accepted as an effective program by its stakeholders. Teachers reported the program assisted in preparing teachers for classroom teaching. The evaluation identified the mentorship component as one of the weaknesses of the program. By developing a mentorship workshop, mentors will gain the skills and knowledge needed to better support the newly qualified teachers.
