Training for NQTs

Induction information for NQTs

IStip runs training courses via regional training centres – all of them schools. In each academic year there will be 3 sessions – one per term.

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 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.

Experienced NQTs

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.

Additional NQT Courses – Developing Professionalism and Resilience

This course is about developing key soft skills. It is split into 2 separate days – one for NQTs in junior schools, and one for NQTs in senior schools. The course cost is £200. Both courses will be available to book in November.

Both courses will offer a workshop-based training day which will focus on the following areas:

  • how to access and sustain fulfillment in a demanding and time-pressured job;
  • sustainable, effective and tactical approaches to planning, marking and workload;
  • the teacher as a role model – perceptions, realities, boundaries and professionalism;
  • working through difficult situations with less stress
