In this programme, Miranda Krestovnikoff comes to the rescue of Gloria Ukey, a part time primary trainee who wants some advice on the induction process.
First, Miranda visits headteacher Patrick Nash, chief executive of the Teacher Support Network. He recommends that Gloria join a teaching union, enabling her to meet with more experienced teachers and utilise her PPA time effectively.
Miranda then meets Rhian Salmon, a tropospheric scientist from the British Antarctic Survey. Having wintered at one of the BAS bases, she has some useful advice on getting on with colleagues in a new environment.
Finally Miranda calls teacher and author Francis Gilbert to hear about his experiences of induction. He highlights the work of support staff in the school and advises that new teachers would do well to build relationships with them.
Will this advice help Gloria get through her induction year unscathed?
