This is the second of two articles to focus on the findings from a study of the socialisation and induction of a sample of New Zealand primary school teachers. In the first paper, background information about the study was presented and categories of data on Pupil-teacher Influences, Parent-teacher Interaction, the Role of the Principal, and Guidance from Senior Teacher were discussed. These four categories of data, along with the three to be detailed below constitute a 'grounded theory' about the socialisation and induction of primary school teachers. The practical applications this theory has for those concerned with beginning teachers will be elaborated in the final section of this article.
