Here you will find all the support information you require to successfully complete your NQT programme.
Induction should be a well planned, targeted and structured support, which is tailored to match individual need, recognising that all NQTs will bring their own wealth of skills and experience.
Their enthusiasm and commitment should be nurtured, hence the importance of maintaining flexibility within the programme. This is a period of rapid learning where knowledge and skills are consolidated.
