First Impressions: The New Teacher Induction Arrangements in Scotland
Draper, Janet; O'Brien, Jim; Christie, Fiona
Journal of In-service Education, v30 n2 p201-224 Jun 2004
New arrangements for the induction of teachers in Scottish schools were introduced for school session 2002/03. Those completing initial teacher education (ITE) are now entitled to a one-year training post with a 70% workload, 30% of working time for professional development and 10% of an experienced teacher's time for support. Such inductees must meet the Standard for Full Registration (SFR) by the end of the year. Evidence on the implementation of the Teacher Induction Scheme was gathered at school, education authority and national level. This article reports the initial findings of the research project and suggests messages for the development of the scheme. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
