The purpose guiding this study was to assess the perceived importance of selected needs of beginning teachers in the public secondary schools of the Division of Cavite, Philippines and the extent to which these needs have been met by the school administrators. Beginning teachers were defined as those teachers having 4 years or less of professional teaching experience. A total of 286 respondents participated in this study. Demographic characteristics included gender, age, years of service in present position, educational degree attained, and employment status. Data analyses utilized t-test, ANOVA, and rank shift. Results from the study indicated that there were no significant differences in the perceptions of beginning teachers and school administrators on importance of the needs of beginning teachers. School administrators tended to perceive that they had met beginning teachers themselves. Certain needs were perceived to be quite important had to do with management of teaching. The extent to which these important needs had been met was relatively low. In the perception of the beginning teachers, these needs were: work, environment, and personal-related ones. No demographic characteristics of beginning teachers, except for educational degree attained, differentiated their perceptions regarding the importance of the needs of beginning teachers. Similarly, no demographic characteristics, except age, differentiated the extent to which these needs were met. Beginning teachers with master’s degree and beyond perceived communicating with parents and knowing the services provided by the school to be more important. Older beginning teachers believed that the needs defined as lacking n instructional materials, understanding teachers’ benefits provided by the government, obtaining the services of the security, and understanding the school rules were addressed to a greater extent in the school.
