  • Induction Program for New Teachers

    Provisionally registered teachers (PRTs) are welcomed into the schools of the Sale Diocese with a practical and supportive professional development Induction Program. The program is comprehensive, yet flexible enough to adapt to individual PRTs, and their schools.

    Key components include:

    Mentor Teacher

    For each PRT, an experienced and competent Mentor Teacher will be nominated within the school to implement the school-based Induction Program.  Guidelines provided will be adapted to suit the professional development needs of the PRTs.  Release time will allow the Mentor teacher to guide the PRT through the school-based Induction Program towards achieving full registration with VIT.

    Catholic Education Office

    A member of the Education Office has been appointed to coordinate the total Induction Program for the Diocese.  Education Officers will assume the advisory and support role for the PRT and mentor through regular communication with the induction team.  The organisation of in-service and support days for PRTs and Mentor Teachers will be the responsibility of school, Education Office and VIT.

    In-service and Support Days

    PRTs will be invited to come together for in-services on common professional learning needs, registration requirements and collegiate networking.

    Induction Program Handbook

    To assist PRTs and Mentor Teachers, a handbook for the Induction Program has been developed. It is available from the Catholic Education Office.
