Changes to statutory induction arrangements

9 September 2022

Following a public consultation on proposals to change statutory induction arrangements in Wales, updated guidance for all parties involved in the statutory induction of newly qualified teachers in Wales has been published (in Welsh) this week. The main change is that funding will now be provided for induction mentors to support NQTs as they undertake induction.
Further changes: 
  • allow flexibility in respect of the length of the induction period NQTs are required to complete
  • introduce a time limit for the satisfactory completion of induction 
  • allow induction to be undertaken in PRUs
These will require amendments to be made to the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Wales) Regulations 2015. Welsh government will provide further information and the timescale for their introduction before half term.
