Abstract: 
Experts say that most beginning teachers spend their first year of teaching in survival
mode. The new and inexperienced have definite areas of needs and concerns – both
professional and personal – and they will gain much from the support of successful, veteran
teachers. For such help to be effective, a better understanding of the forms of assistance
required will be necessary. This paper presents the findings of surveys on both beginning and
mentoring teachers regarding BT needs and concerns, and the kinds of support to be provided.
It also includes an outline of the kind of mentoring programme that can be introduced to help
BTs in the school.
