Every teacher has what it takes to be great. Research shows that the first few years of development are the most crucial. That’s why our highly supportive, Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) programme runs alongside the school-based teaching role, dedicating extra time to personal development.

This is a programme for newly qualified teachers who, at the beginning of their teaching careers, are looking for a programme to help them become outstanding teachers.

As well as covering key themes, bringing NQTs together develops important professional relationships early in their careers. It allows them to share experiences and create supportive networks.

The six afternoon sessions are led by high calibre senior leaders with a proven track record of excellent NQT development and support skills.
