Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Induction

NQT

Our educational institutions are more diverse than they have ever been, so whether you are teaching in a maintained, free or special school, an academy or college, Together for Children is here to support you and your organisation to develop a highly skilled and professional teaching workforce.

The main purpose of induction is to provide a bridge from initial teacher training, to being established as a fully qualified teacher. Together for Children supports schools to deliver induction as “the Appropriate Body” and has the statutory duty of quality assurance in the process. We provide a range of training opportunities to support NQTs and Induction Tutors.

We offer two induction routes for NQTs:

  • Core: This comes as standard as part of the NQT registration. The offer includes a range of ‘pick and mix’ free spotlight sessions which are designed to build on initial teacher training.
  • Enhanced: This package includes all of the elements of the core package plus free access to more detailed/key stage specific subject training which take place in the morning or afternoon sessions.

We offer a unique NQT residential conference based at Derwent Hill in Keswick.

Full details and current costs can be found in our current NQT Induction programme.

Schools looking to register an NQT for 2019 and beyond should visit our online registration and reporting platform at https://sunderland.nqtmanager.com/Login.aspx

Details of the 2019 NQT Conference can be found in our leaflet.
