Getting Started: An Induction Guide for Newly Qualified Teachers by Henry Liebling
From September 1999, all newly qualified teachers (NQTs) employed at maintained schools in England will need to complete a three-term induction period. Getting Started gives NQTs advice on their first year of teaching - how to get to know the school and their new pupils, how to work with their induction tutor and when to ask for help. Practical advice is given on: getting to grips with the school's documentation; knowing what to expect in the first three terms; managing pupils' behaviour and establishing discipline; dealing with tiredness and stress; time management, prioritising work and decision-making; classroom management; marking, recording and assessment. The school effectiveness series Getting Started is part of the School Effectiveness Series, which focuses on practical and useful ideas for schools and individual teachers. The series addresses the issues of whole-school improvement and new knowledge about teaching and learning, and offers straightforward solutions which teachers can use to make life more rewarding for those they teach.
