This publication provides a comprehensive analysis of the most important issues facing teachers during the early stages of their careers. The effectiveness of teachers fresh to the profession is an important policy issue, especially knowing the impact that teachers have on student learning.

The OECD’s Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) is the first and only international survey on the conditions of teaching and learning. This report uses the TALIS 2008 dataset to analyse key aspects of new teachers’ work and highlight policy implications.


The Work of New Teachers

Teaching practices are at the centre of the debate of what constitutes effective teaching. The work of new teachers, including their teaching practices and professional collaboration, is explored in Chapter 4. This discussion explores the work and teaching load of new teachers, along with an analysis of new teachers’ contractual status and job satisfaction. As teaching beliefs are often found to play a role in teachers’choice of teaching practices, a discussion of teaching beliefs of new teachers compared with those of more experienced teachers is also presented in this chapter.
