Our Bespoke NQT development programme is carefully designed to support NQTs’ professional development throughout the NQT year and into the RQT year. It aims to arm teachers who are new to the profession with the necessary tools to enable them to become effective and resilient practitioners.

The programme offers the opportunity for primary and secondary teachers to work together in further developing their understanding of:

  • Building effective relationships in the classroom
  • Managing behaviour positively
  • Developing and sustaining positive mind sets
  • Supporting pupils with SEND
  • Subject Knowledge (per se and pedagogical)
  • NQTs will leave each session equipped with a range of professional and practical strategies and tools that they can use in their classroom. The sessions provide excellent opportunities for NQTs to network with each other and to learn both with and from their peers.

All sessions are included as part of the Appropriate Body single registration fee so there are no additional charges.
