Orientation and induction for teachers

The Northern Territory Department of Education is committed to building a culture of professional growth in all schools across the Northern Territory.

Teachers will commence in schools at varying stages of their careers with a range of knowledge and experiences. Orientation and induction provide a foundation for career-long professional growth.

The stages are:

  • prior to commencement
  • on arrival with a face-to-face central orientation program
  • local induction at the school
  • ongoing support through professional learning, mentoring and network opportunities.

Quality orientation and local induction builds whole school professional learning cultures and enables teachers to transition to the Department of Education and their new teaching contexts. It supports teachers to meet professional growth and career needs while supporting teacher wellbeing.
