Primary NQT Support & Development


A programme of six half-day sessions throughout the year designed to both support and challenge NQTs in their first year of teaching. The programme is delivered by a range of experienced, outstanding practitioners including SLEs, Advanced Skills Teachers and Senior Leaders. Sessions will provide:

  • An opportunity to share good practice
  • A teaching and learning theme for each session
  • The chance to discuss teaching and learning with each other and with more experienced, outstanding practitioners
  • Visits to lessons in their subject and/or phase leading to reflection on effective teaching and learning
  • Practical tips and resources to take away and use the next day
