The Independent Education Union of Australia believes that the structured and resourced induction of those new to the teaching profession is integral to the quality assurance processes in any school and system.

A more structured approach to a beginning teacher’s experience can be achieved by a better combination of time release and effective mentoring.  In “best practice” models, induction roles and responsibilities are clearly outlined and formally linked to professional development and collaborative skill review.
