Welcome to IStip

The Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel is the single largest statutory body for induction, with over 1000 NQTs. We set and uphold high standards with regards to the processes and procedures of induction within our schools, whilst using our experience to enable these schools to provide quality and meaningful induction for their teachers.

We have organised the site into three sections that can be accessed directly from the tabs at the top of the page:

  • before induction, which deals with questions about qualifying to teach, and provides a little information on the independent sector;
  • during induction, which covers the actual process itself and is divided into sections for Induction Coordinators/Tutors and NQTs;
  • after induction, which covers what happens after the final assessment form is submitted as well as the matter of further or continuing professional development.

On all pages, there is a link to the online NQT Manager, which is the system used by schools and IStip to administer the process.
