NQT Induction Training Programme 2019-20 (EYFS and Primary NQTs)

Description
The Royal Borough of Greenwich Induction Programme for NQTs covers key areas to support NQTs during their induction year. All dates are suitable for EYFS and Primary NQTs, and several are suitable for Secondary NQTs, too. We welcome NQTs from Royal Greenwich schools, as well as NQTs working in schools outside of the borough. The sessions are delivered by experienced and outstanding practitioners, and the topics covered ensure that NQTs have the opportunity to develop the skills they gained from training, whilst reflecting on the Teachers’ Standards throughout the year. Most sessions of the programme are offered in the morning and repeated in the afternoon. Experience has shown that having the opportunity to attend regular meetings at the Professional Development Centre (PDC) supports NQTs in building supportive relationships and networks, as well as broadening their skills and bank of resources to promote their development towards successful completion of induction and beyond.

This package includes the below training sessions
