Investigating National Beginning Teachers project

Project Leader(s): 

The National Beginning Teacher (NBT) induction grant aims to lift employment of new graduates from initial teacher education from 80% to 90% by supporting schools to employ a beginning teacher (BT) in shortage locations and shortage subjects. The support is in the form of an induction grant of $10,000 for schools that employ a BT for 12 months or more.  NZCER has been contracted by the Ministry of Education to evaluate this initiative. The purpose of the evaluation is to understand how the initiative operated in its first year (2019), and what difference it made to employment of BTs.
