There’s no shortage of advice for beginning teachers, so we asked 10 experienced teachers what they wish they knew when they were starting out.

“If anyone tells you not to smile before Easter, that is not true.”

Fresh out of university, or embarking on a new teaching career?

ISV’s Beginning Teachers Program aims to give new teachers the best possible start to their career and help them thrive in the classroom.

  • Enhance your professional practice
  • Develop your confidence in the classroom
  • Receive in-school support and guidance from experienced practitioners
  • Engage in ongoing learning to build your capacity as a teacher
  • Gain access to a supportive network of new teachers from other schools.
  • Supporting teachers, supporting schools​​​.

ISV’s Beginning Teachers Program not only gives new teachers the confidence to thrive in the classroom, but supports schools to develop and retain quality teachers for the long-term.
