This INSET handbook offers induction tutors, head teachers and LEA advisers practical and up-to-date guidance on the statutory programs of support, monitoring and assessment for newly qualified teachers (NQTs). Based on over ten years' experience of running induction courses, the book examines what Circular 5/99 means in practice, explores the Induction Standards and shows how the huge role of the induction tutor can be made manageable. This handbook contains useful formats for guiding NQTs and recording their progress and offers help in analyzing Career Entry Profiles and setting up an individualized induction program. The author suggests ways to monitor and improve teaching through sampling pupils' work, looking at planning and observing lessons and gives guidance with examples on how to manage the termly assessment meetings and write reports on the NQT.
Throughout, the purpose is to help hard-pressed tutors and schools make a success of the awesome responsibility they now shoulder for admitting NQTs fully into the teaching profession.
