NQT Programme 2018-19

Course Description

The NQT Support Programme aims to provide high quality support and development for those starting their teaching career. This will be achieved through an inspiring approach, which is

facilitated by Headteachers and Specialist Leaders of Education within North Star Teaching School Alliance. The course is rooted in a drive to develop outstanding practitioners for the benefit of children in North Star Schools. In addition, the programme aims to embed a commitment to Continuing Professional Development in NQTs, promoting the ethos of responsibility for their own development. The programme was extremely successful in previous years, with 100% of delegates giving positive feedback:

I will be happier so more effective teaching

The flexible approach made it feel relevant and really useful

It has helped me take a step back and think about things.

Nice to share with other NQTs in the same boat – felt really supported…
