Indie induction and juries

3rd March 2000 at 00:00
THERE are still some ill-inform- ed or politically-motivated teacher-training lecturers who foster the false belief that newly-qualified teachers cannot follow their induction year in an independent school. That is nonsense.

Under arrangements approved by the Government, the Independent Schools Council has established a teacher-induction panel to oversee induction arrangements in its linked schools. Theseschools offer the same opportunities for support, mentoring and completion of a recognised induction programme as are available in maintained schools.

Early teaching experience in independent schools is therefore entirely portable to the maintained sector.
