The early years of teaching are a sensitive period in the process of professionalization of the teacher. During this induction period, the school community, in the broader perspective of the term, has the task of providing a wide range of intellectual, social, emotional and material resources to support and guide the transition of new teachers in the midst of their professional practice.

National and international research shows that effective models of training for newly recruited teachers should provide tools for action and reflection on professional, organizational, social and career guidance plans.

This special issue wants to review state-of-the-art of issues and solutions of teacher induction focusing also on the current challenges and perspectives. Submissions should be original and unpublished, and can address technical, organizational, methodological aspects as well as case studies and implementation examples.
