Journal of New Approaches in Educational Research, v6 n2 p103-111 Jul 2017
This study consists of an investigation into the experiences of new teachers in primary education in the province of León, during their initiation into teaching. The objective was to explore how they experience this stage, and to recognize the training needs that exist along with the degree of motivation and satisfaction expressed with the measures designed for integration into teaching. The methodology used is descriptive and interpretive, ex-post-facto oriented towards a search for improvement. Research finding reveals the existence of significant gaps in initial teacher training that bears a negative influence on the subsequent professional development of the teachers involved. In this sense, the training programs designed for teachers who are initiating their career, although valued positively by both novices and experienced teachers; do not overcome their initial shortcomings. Despite the difficulties, however, new teachers show a general feeling of satisfaction with the stage in which they initiate their teaching.
