We are hugely committed to action that is shaped by evidence-informed practice. This can encompass:
- published research
- your professional judgement/experiences
- your organisational context
- stakeholders’ values and concerns
See here for a further exploration of the concept of evidence-based practice.
This month we are focusing on evidence around teacher induction processes. We know many APs support new teachers as per function 4 of the AP role. We encourage you to contribute your experiences and views via a short survey being run by ICF. You can find further information on the survey below.
Induction Processes – A Survey for the ETF
ICF have been commissioned by the ETF to conduct research into new teacher induction across the sector. The aim of the research will be to inform future support provided by the ETF to the FE sector.
To this end, ICF are inviting teachers who have started teaching in FE within the last two years to complete a short survey about the induction they received when they started their teaching in FE. Your responses will help inform the ETF’s plans for supporting new teachers and help build an evidence base on ‘what works’ in teacher induction.
The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and ICF would be most grateful if you could take the time to complete it or pass it on to colleagues who began teaching in the last two years. All answers will be treated as confidential and will be used only for research purposes. No information that could personally identify you will be shared with the ETF or any other third parties.
