Yuksel, Harun (2013) Personal and professional experiences of turkish qualified teachers in Victorian schools. Other Degree thesis, Victoria University.


The aim of this research was to identify the personal and professional experiences of Turkish primary and secondary teachers, who are currently teaching, or have previously taught in Victorian schools. This research drew upon these teachers’ experiences to make recommendations for future teacher education, training, professional development and/or induction programs. These recommendations if implemented will support future Turkish teachers in adapting to the Victorian education system. The induction programs and facilities are expected to encourage overseas graduate teachers, who are currently not in the teaching system, to re-enter the workforce as teachers in Victoria.
