The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership held an Induction Round Table on the 21st of February 2014. At the event, three groups of researchers presented findings from studies related to teacher induction in schools. In the first presentation, the lessons from the Teachers of Promise Study, conducted by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research were outlined. The second presentation gave an overview of the Addressing the Teacher Exodus: Enhancing Early Career Teacher Resilience and Retention in Changing Times project, which explored the conditions that promote resilience in early career teachers. The third presentation looked at the research undertaken by the Queensland College of Teachers into attrition of recent Queensland graduate teachers.
This report contains executive summaries of these three pieces of research.
