What are the features of a positive work environment for early career teachers? This article examines this question through interviews with secondary school early career science teachers. Findings suggest a science department that is collegial and collaborative is essential in encouraging teachers in the early stages of their career to stay in the profession and engage in practice that supports student learning. While the article focuses on the science department work environment, the features and issues raised could have implications for different departments or sectors within New Zealand.
