lead4ward is excited to offer the Teacher Induction: Training of Trainer virtual series! Beginning teachers are our most valuable and precious resources! Helping these teachers to flourish and grow can be some of the most important work we do as educators. Creating an effective induction program will surround new teachers with the support they need to be successful.

Induction programs can also contribute to:

  • higher teacher retention
  • lower attrition
  • increased teacher effectiveness
  • happier teachers

Building and sustaining an effective induction program is the heart of this professional learning virtual series for teacher induction. Participants will explore the necessary components of an effective induction program and learn how to build, support, and sustain one in your district. The virtual professional learning days are designed around a training-of-trainers (TOT) model and will prepare you to lead induction training in your own district.

The virtual Teacher Induction TOT includes:

  • Induction Overview
  • Research & Rationale
  • Training Foundations
  • First-Year Teacher Training-of-Trainers
  • Mentoring & Coaching Training-of-Trainers
  • First-Year Teacher Notebook*
  • Mentoring and Coaching Notebook*
  • Induction Training-of-Trainers Manual*
  • TOT PowerPoints

*Important note! All materials are required in-hand the first day of the training. Materials will be mailed to the school district address provided in your registration (materials will not be shipped to residential addresses).
