'Bubb provides excellent mentoring and strategies for both the new teacher to follow as well those who will be providing the induction support...What is extremely helpful about this information being in one book is that each group can become familiar with expectations, strategies for success, and general information about the teaching profession and the induction experience. Bubb demystifies a process that for many must seem a bureaucratic nightmare'
