Abstract

This workshop considers the various institutional interactions which early career teachers (ECTs) experience, ranging from those with authority figures, informal networks within departments or cross-institutional provision through teacher education programmes. ECTs consequently experience different norms and expectations which may engender conflicting demands on an individual’s attempts to develop their sense of purpose and identity. The session draws on small-scale research undertaken with ECTs, their mentors and teacher educators. It considers the following questions. Where does ECTs’ learning take place? What is the affective impact of different interventions and experiences? What are the implications for those working with early career teachers?
