This programme is a valuable way of supporting the NQT +1 colleagues in your school through the use of some of your Education Recovering funding. This programme has been designed in response to the challenging two years that this cohort of teachers have experienced in terms of training and NQT experience.
These sessions are designed to offer invaluable support to NQT+1 and allow them to explore how they can embed strong teaching and learning practices within their classroom, consider where their career path may go and also how they can use academic research to continue their understanding of pedagogy and how it can impact their professional development.
The twilights will take place from 4pm to 5.30pm and will be delivered either virtually or face to face in accordance with COVID guidelines at the time. Details will be sent before each session.
Who is this course for?
Recently qualified teachers (NQT+1s).
The course is aimed at those who have successfully completed their NQT induction and are now working within schools, but without the mentoring framework so valued by NQTs.
