NQT Programme : “From Curriculum Deliverers to Skills Builders”

 

  • We are proud to have trained 165 NQTs from 49 schools over the past 6 years
  • 60% of our bookings are repeat business from schools who regularly engage with us
  • We have run our NQT programme since 2013 and have constantly adapted content in response to feedback and the challenging educational landscape
  • The programme consists of 8 half day afternoon sessions (including lunch) spread across the school year (could be a great use of NQT non contact time)
  • Tailored mentor training and support for new and experienced mentors

 

We are running our highly commended NQT programme again this year, now in its sixth successful year. With the impending launch of the Early Careers Framework, the programme has been re designed to reflect the needs of an early career teacher. Suitable for NQTs or any teachers early on in their career. In light of tightening budgets and cover costs we have substantially reduced the programme cost to £795 pp and designed the programme so all sessions are run in the afternoon.

The first years of teaching are crucial for newly qualified teachers and as a Head or Principal you will want to ensure that you are accessing a programme that will efficiently support the induction of new entrants into the profession.
