Inducting graduates in your school

As a school leader, you have the capacity to influence a graduate teacher’s developing view of your school, of public education and of the teaching profession.

You need to ensure they are given opportunities to thrive and are encouraged to achieve full registration with the Teacher Registration Board of Western Australia.


Graduate Teacher Professional Learning Program
      Over the Graduate’s first two years, this four module program builds the skills and understandings needed to become a highly effective classroom teacher. Each module aligns to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Discover more.
In Class Coaching Program
  On request, this program provides a minimum of six coaching sessions with a trained teaching and learning advocate. Advocates visit schools and classrooms to work with your graduate teachers to maximise their professional growth. Discover more.
Leadership Support
  School leaders can complete the Institute’s online Great Start for Grads  program at their convenience. It is also important to develop an induction kit with practical information on what to do over the first few weeks and what professional learning they should attend. Make sure you discuss your school vision and priorities and allow opportunities for constant feedback and support.
Induction Resources
  Graduate teachers are provided with allowances and release time as they establish themselves as new teachers. Discover more about the allowances by visiting our Graduate Teacher Information and Support section.
