NQT Induction Training Programme 2020-21 (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.

Experience has shown that having the opportunity to attend regular meetings with colleagues from other schools 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.

Reflection, Acceptance and Celebration
Description

Join us for an opportunity to reflect on the year, celebrate success and plan for the future.

We will take some time to explore possible pathways, hopes, dreams and aspirations, whilst also giving practical thought to the very real needs of where we are at on the journey as an NQT and what we can do to support ourselves and each other one year in.

Pupils will:

  • benefit from increased emotional resilience
  • benefit from increased confidence to persevere with challenges in learning

NQTs will:

  • have an increased understanding of the factors that can promote mental health and emotional well-being in the classroom
  • have a greater appreciation of the impact of teachers' own emotional well-being on their teaching practice
  • have an understanding of ways to manage the classroom environment that is conducive to teacher and pupil well-being, linked to real life scenarios

Settings will:

  • benefit from improved relationships between pupils and and teacher
  • benefit from a reduction in fixed term/permanent exclusions and school absence

  • Be confident when challenging requests for pay increases and have a clear rationale for any pay increase refusals
  • This course will reflect the statutory requirements for maintained schools in relation to Headteacher Performance Management, which is recommended best practice for all schools to follow.

Governors:
  • Will be confident in setting challenging and aspirational targets for the Headteacher
  • Will be able to ensure that the targets are reviewed regularly
  • Will have the confidence to challenge the senior leadership to evidence that performance management targets have been set for all staff and that they are impacting on outcomes for pupils
