Training for NQTs
Induction information for NQTs
IStip runs professional development for NQTs online and in schools. A programme for the current term will be sent directly to NQTs and their Tutors.
The courses are generic, and although you will find yourself with other NQTs with whom you have much in common, the sessions are not subject or curriculum specific, although some centres will run separate sessions for different key stages. IStip chooses to focus on issues which are relevant to all NQTs: classroom management, relations with parents and coping with the rigours of the first year of teaching.
Details of your Summer term centre (your school can choose a centre when registering, and we try to give you your preferred choice) will be sent to you by IStip, and the centre will contact you directly with further details about the day. These sessions are formal professional development, and you should RSVP, and dress as you would for a (formal) day at work.
If you are an experienced NQT (and here we mean five or more years of teaching), then these sessions may not be as relevant for you, and you should discuss with your tutor whether you might better spend the time on other CPD.
