What is N.T.I.P. ?
The New Teacher Induction Program (NTIP) supports the growth and professional development of new teachers. It is the second step in a continuum of professional development for teachers to support effective teaching, learning, and assessment practices, building on and complementing the first step: pre-service education programs. It provides another full year of professional support so that new teachers can develop the requisite skills and knowledge that will enable them to achieve success as experienced teachers in Ontario. By helping new teachers achieve their full potential, the NTIP supports Ontario's vision of achieving high levels of student performance.
For the purposes of the New Teacher Induction Program, new teachers are defined as all new teachers (including teachers trained out-of-province) certified by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) who have been hired into permanent positions, full-time or part-time, by a school board, school authority or provincial school to begin teaching for the first time in Ontario on or after the start of the school year.
