The transition from student teacher to teacher of students is a significant phase in the professional lives of teachers with the quality of these initial experiences impacting significantly on teacher retention in the profession and later career development (Department of Education Science and Training [DEST], 2002). The support provided to teachers during this critical phase of their development lays the foundations for the quality of their professional experiences and their continued professional learning (Carter & Francis, 2001). This book has been designed to facilitate the transition to the real world of professional practice by providing some words of wisdom and practical guidance and support for early career teachers and graduating teacher education students.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
