Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT)

NQT Induction

Our teaching school is an Appropriate Body for NQT Induction for both primary and secondary NQTs. Induction is an important bridge between training and practice that supports newly qualified teachers to build their effectiveness and improve their teaching. It also provides an important quality assurance measure for schools, pupils and parents.


The annual charge for the Induction service for each NQT is £250 (or £90 a term).

NQT Induction Tutor training

All induction tutors are invited to attend training at no additional cost to learn about the requirements of the statutory induction period for NQTs and to receive guidance on setting up an induction programme to meet statutory requirements.

To find out dates and book a place please email: stating your name, school, contact email address of the induction tutor(s) who will be attending.

What happens if an NQT is not making satisfactory progress?

In a small number of cases, teachers experience difficulties and an induction tutor may feel that the NQT is not progressing satisfactorily against the Teachers’ Standards. In such cases the induction tutor should discuss this with the headteacher / professional tutor, who in turn should contact the Named Person for NQTs at the Appropriate Body:

Ann Wilks, NQT Professional Learning Co-ordinator

T: 07917 734531


The purpose of identifying unsatisfactory progress is so that the school, with the Appropriate Body’s help, can put extra guidance and support into place so that they will be confident in recommending that the NQT has performed satisfactorily against the Teachers’ Standards by the end of the induction year.
