Teacher Induction Program
Teacher Induction Program  (TIP)

What is New Teacher Induction?

The process of preparing, supporting, and retaining new teachers is called Induction. Induction includes all of the things done to train and support new teachers and acculturate them to teaching, including the responsibilities, missions, and philosophies of their districts and schools. (Harry Wong)
                                                                                   


Induction is the process of systematically training and supporting new teachers beginning before the first day of school and continuing throughout the first two or three years of teaching.  Its purposes include, but are not limited to:

  • easing the transition into teaching
  •  improving teacher effectiveness through training in classroom management and effective teaching technique
  • promoting the district’s culture
  • increasing the retention of greater numbers of highly qualified teachers

The process begins with two to five days of initial training prior to the first day of school at which time new teachers are instructed in the rudiments of classroom management, first-day procedures, discipline, instructional strategies, and more.  Support and training continue, systematically over a period of two or three years.  Induction unfolds in progressive stages, following the teacher’s development over a period of time.

Induction programs provide new teachers the support needed during the often-difficult transition from pre-service education to actual classroom teaching – from students of teaching to teachers of students.
