Research project on post induction teacher employment

The Association has been asked to invite appropriate members to take part in a Glasgow University Research Project dealing with the career trajectories of post induction teachers.

This research should provide an accurate picture of what paths teachers actually take on completion of their probationary period and will be a valuable marker for all those involved in teacher planning. Additionally the project may focus on transition from university to employment; induction experiences; support during first year of teaching; support following first year of teaching and longer term employment prospects. It is self-evident that this represents an important piece of research.

Members who may be interested should be aware that they may be interviewed by the research team. This may be conducted by phone or on a one to one basis and would require only one hour of time. We would encourage as many members as possible to volunteer.

If you are interested please contact Alan McKenzie in the offices of the Association for more details.
