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.


Why are New Teachers Important?

The first chapter summarises the key policy issues around which this report is centred. These include discussions of new teachers and the schools in which they work, the support and development that new teachers receive and the work and the efficacy of new teachers. This introduction also describes the key features of the TALIS 2008 dataset, including the sampling used in TALIS and how this affects the analysis of new teachers that is discussed throughout the report. The background information provided in this chapter is particularly important given the implications for comparisons made between new and experienced teachers.
