New Graduates Introduction to Teaching

Completing your teaching qualification has been a big journey, Congratulations! Now begins the next phase of your teaching career - becoming a Certificated Teacher. We understand that embarking on this process can be confusing and you will no doubt have many questions.
That’s why we are bringing you this short course. To give you an overview of what is required of you as a Certificated Teacher, what the Teaching Council expect, and what your mentoring and guidance programme should look like in your ECE work setting.

There is a lot of misinformation circulating in the ECE sector about what is required of a provisionally certificated teacher. Barbara Watson, the creator of this short course, investigated induction and mentoring programmes in her PhD studies and has also worked alongside the Teaching Council delivering workshops that covered certification requirements. She will bring clarity to the confusion and uncertainty you may be feeling as you step into this next stage of your career.

In this course we examine the purpose of the provisional certification period and the expectations of the induction and mentoring (I&M) programme your centre is required to provide for you. You will learn about your role, and that of your mentor, in the I&M programme and what will be required of you before becoming a fully certificated teacher. 

And our graduation gift to you...
This short course includes a selection of FREE
recorded webinars, readings and teaching resources to support you as you begin your PTC journey.
