EARLY CAREERS SUPPORT

NQT, RQT & BEYOND

 
The re-opening of schools following lockdown is a daunting prospect for our newest entrants to the profession.  HCTS offers a bespoke and responsive programme newly designed for 2020 to take into account this unprecedented siutation.


Our unique group training combined with smaller tutorial support recognises that NQTs, RQTs and those entering their third year have missed key elements of training.  Providing pastoral and emotional support to teachers, addressing gaps in pedagogical and subject knowledge and offering practical tried and tested approaches to behaviour management is central to all the programme, taking into account the new guidelines from the Early Careers Framework.  Additional mentor training and support has been built into our 2020/21 offer, taking into account the increased demonds on their roles.

NQT PROGRAMME 2020-21

 

Our NQT programme is flexible to accommodaate changes to circumstances throughout the year.  Recognising our new entrants need time in the classroom, the autumn term training is school based with short, regular Zoon contact and training sessions that support and guide NQTs through the crucialo first few months.  The focus being upon;

 

- NQT emotional and well-being support, offering a strong network of experienced teachers, leaders and peers

- Individual support and training from mentors

- A programme that covers the key elements of the Teaching Standards in line with the Early Career Framework Guidance

 

The format of training is replicated throughout the year based upon the latest research models.  As social distancing relaxes and NQT school-based experience increases, it is anticipated the face to face element will be introduced later in the academic year.  Each cycle will begin with interactive training sessions, followed by directed gap tasks, reflection and evaluation in smaller group tutorials.
