Abstract

The paper describes a study that assesses the feasibility of identifying signs of teacher dissatisfaction at the earliest stage. ITT students were questioned about their satisfaction with their school during their time at university, and again during their NQT year. Their responses were compared in order to see whether NQTs who subsequently consider leaving the profession can be spotted a year earlier during university training, so that remedial action can be taken in university.
