Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT) Service

We provide a programme of professional support and guidance for schools and their NQTs, helping ensure NQTs are in receipt of a tailored programme which allows them to reach their potential. Through the NQT Induction Service, we fulfil the statutory role of ‘appropriate body’, providing independent quality assurance of statutory induction to ensure that assessment is fair and consistent and that schools are providing effective support for their NQTs.
