A comprehensive support programme for the city’s NQTs
Following another successful year of the city wide NQT programme, the city's Teaching Schools (Bristol Early Years; Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance and St Mary Redcliffe and Temple Secondary Teaching School) have again joined together to provide a comprehensive programme for NQT support and development, planned and facilitated by the Specialist Leaders of Education - experienced teachers and leaders from across the city. All of the sessions will be led by phase specific specialists with some sessions delivered across phases to ensure each NQT has a clear picture of progression and is supported in their induction year.
Having reviewed the programme from the last few years, we have listened to feedback and are now offering more support earlier on in the year.
The programme can be purchased as a package (£400) or schools can have a 'pick and mix' approach and choose individual sessions. There is a discount for booking the full 5 day programme.
We will also be publishing details of SEN and PE training for primary NQTs on our website - areas which have been highlighted as aspects needing further training from previous course evaluations.
We are holding a free 'Welcome Event' for all NQTs who are teaching for the first time in the city, in a joint venture with Bristol Local Authority and the city's teaching schools. Bristol speakers, NQTs who have completed their induction year and teaching school leaders will share what Bristol has to offer this year and the programme of support for new teachers to teaching in the city. This is taking place on Tuesday 12th September, from 16:00 - 17:30 at the M Shed – Wapping Rd, BS1 4RN. More details of this event can be found here https://goo.gl/H7bQDS

Please note: Bristol Local Authority work collaboratively with us to fulfil the statutory role of Appropriate Body for NQT induction. Bristol LA ensure that all newly qualified teachers are registered with the DfE and that statutory requirements are met, providing support and guidance to schools and NQTs throughout the induction period. You MUST register your NQT with an 'Appropriate Body' to ensure all requirements are met.
