Supporting Teachers’ Professional Start at School


During a Comenius Regio Project with Granada (Ayuda basica para profesores en su primer año laboral 2011-2013) the local education authority in Giessen and its partners developed a pilot version of a manual which offers a proposal for structuring the professional start of new teachers.

The manual gives orientation for the heads of schools as well as concrete proposals for activities and material to be used in the start up support of new teachers. The project was nominateed as project of the month October 2012 by the national German agency PAD. During the project itself there was not time enough for a field test and the necessary evaluation of the material. Aim of the new project is to transfer the structure to another country and to evaluate the use of the material.
