NQT and NQT+1 programme
Our programmes of professional support for teaching staff start with a highly acclaimed programme for those in their NQT and NQT+1 years. In place for five years, this programme builds the confidence and skills of newly qualified staff and provides an opportunity to network with those in a similar position in other schools.
The programme includes some of the key core themes to support all teachers in the early years of their work such as improving literacy and numeracy, securing assessment strategies, strengthening pedagogy, promoting behaviour for learning, and safeguarding.
The programme also seeks to ensure there is a way to build in a range of other strategies – often through close school to school support which reflects school and individual needs.
