Now is a good time for your school to sign the Promise to New Teachers.

A big shout out to Sacred Heart College, Lower Hutt, for being the first branch in the Hutt Valley region to sign the Promise to New Teachers.

It’s a new year, with thousands of new teachers in classrooms around the motu, so it’s a perfect time to get your school signed up to the Promise to New Teachers.

Issues for new teachers remain relevant

The Promise to New Teachers was first developed in 2017 by the Establishing Teachers’ Committee, at a time when 77% of new teachers were employed on temporary agreements. The number of new teachers in temporary agreements has decreased significantly since then but the issues frequently experienced by new teachers remain as relevant as they ever were.

The Promise to New Teachers is a way for Boards of Trustees, principals and school communities to show responsibility for the future of the profession. By signing this promise your school community demonstrates a shared mutual commitment to new teachers in your school.
