Abstract

This paper introduces a framework for providing beginning teachers with induction and mentoring support. The policy being put into practice in Hong Kong is adopted as a vehicle for facilitating beginning teachers’ first year teaching and learning in a school specific context so as to ensure their smooth transition to classroom teachers and that they can develop ‘threshold’ competencies upon completion of a one year induction period.
