NQT Development Programme ( Benjamin Curtis Core programme)

Target audience:

Newly qualified, recently qualified and supply teachers, Higher Level Teaching Assistants in all schools

Outline of event:

The programme consists of seven days of training , each of which is repeated in two different venues ( central: Tickton Grange and west: Brough Business Centre)
Each session runs from 9.15 to 3.30
The start dates of each cohort are staggered so that NQTs starting at different points in the year can access the whole programme if they wish.
Cohort 1 (NQTs starting from September 2017)
Cohort 2 (NQTs starting from January 2018)

It is not a requirement to attend always at the same centre, or to attend all the training sessions although this can facilitate NQT networking.

Learning and Teaching Outcomes:

All NQTs successfully complete induction
- Where RQT or supply staff are involved, issues to be addressed are assessed as becoming more securely "good" in lesson observations

We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes


Resources and tasks to be completed by participants will be communicated by the facilitator, Jane Pow ( Benjamin Curtis Foundation)

Online resources:

NQTs may access materials related to their induction at:
or find information via the NQT manager site or at the eriding site.

Duration: this is a full day event
