Consultation on amendments to the induction regulations in Wales
The Minister for Education and Skills set out his intention to review statutory induction in Wales in February 2011. The purpose of this review is to develop a robust, high quality and nationally consistent approach to induction for all newly qualified teachers across Wales, and to provide greater flexibility in order to allow supply teachers to complete their induction period in Wales.
This review of the statutory induction arrangements is in line with the wider work currently being undertaken as part of the development of the practice review and development model. This model aims to ensure that practitioners’ professional standards, performance management and professional development fit together into one coherent model in order to raise standards of teaching and improve learner outcomes.
The practice review and development model is being rolled out across Wales in a series of stages. To date, this has included:
- the introduction of revised professional standards in September 2011
- the introduction of the School Teacher Appraisal (Wales) Regulations 2011 on 1st January 2012 and
- the roll out of the new national professional qualification for headship in December 2011.
The practice review and development model will continue to roll out during 2012 and will include: the introduction of the masters in educational practice in September 2012; a range of leadership development opportunities to support aspiring leaders and serving headteachers; and the creation of an online bank of high quality resources to support all practitioners with their professional development.
