Continuing Professional Development

NQT Professional Development Programme

The programme is aimed at NQTs from both the primary and secondary phases. As well as giving exceptional and targeted teaching, the course also provides an opportunity for new teachers from across the region to network providing a valuable means peer to peer support and development.

What is the NQT Professional Development Programme?

The NQT Professional Development Programme is a 10-part programme that supports NQTs and enables them to meet the professional standards at the end of their induction year. This year, following increased demand, we will be offering separate sessions for primary and secondary NQTs.

Each session covers topics that are essential to classroom practice and provides strategies to develop teaching and learning opportunities. Sessions have been carefully mapped against the Teachers' Standards to support NQT to develop their expertise in all areas.
