Newly appointed school guidance and counselling professionals are often experienced teachers familiar with the school system. Nevertheless, the field of guidance counselling differs quite significantly from that of teaching. Unfortunately, the experience of new guidance and counselling professionals has received little research attention. Based on focus group interview data, this article discusses the perceptions of professionals on the induction of new professionals.

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.
