    Abstract

    This study is an inquiry into the contribution of the Transition Year Programme to the professional development o f teachers and by implication of such development to the development of the school as a whole. The central focus of the study however, is on the potential for the professional development of the individual teacher through his or her engagement in the Transition Year Programme. The author seeks to identify ways in which the Transition Year initiative has contributed to teachers’ professional growth and to their extended professional engagement in school life. As a teacher and school principal the author has both a personal and professional interest in teacher development.
