NQT Special School Induction Programme

For the academic year 2019/20, the Wandle Teaching School Alliance will continue to work together with Wandsworth LA to jointly deliver the Primary NQT Induction Programme.

We continually update the programme to ensure that schools benefit from the most up to date guidance and support.

Our Primary Schools NQT Programme consists of:

  • Seven days' worth of tailored training devised and delivered by teachers and trainers who have wide experience of the Primary Schools context.
  • Three sessions aimed at providing vital support and guidance to the team around the NQT. This thoughtfully created training supports you to enable your NQTs to reach their training goals and to make the most effective contribution to your school improvement.
  • Three Twilight sessions at the most challenging points of the academic year to allow NQTs from our four programmes (EYFS, Special Schools, Years 1 to 3 and Years 4 to 6) to come together and support each other around common challenges. 
  • Early identification and tailored interventions for NQTs at risk of not meeting the Teachers' Standards.
