This section sets out the full statutory guidance: Induction for newly qualified teachers (England): Statutory Guidance for appropriate bodies, head teachers, school staff and governing bodies. This version was amended in December 2012.
A printable version of this guidance is also available from this page.
This is statutory guidance from the Department for Education. This means that those involved in managing statutory induction arrangements must have regard to it when carrying out their relevant duties. The guidance covers those settings which are both required to or choose to offer induction to their newly qualified teachers.
This guidance updates and replaces the statutory guidance which accompanied the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (England) Regulations 2008. It will next be reviewed in September 2013.
This guidance is for:
1 Throughout this document 'academies' includes 16-19 and alternative provision academies.
