Course date: Various dates from September 2019 to May 2020

Course venue: M-Shed (welcome event) and Whitehall Primary School

From £85 per session

Target Audience: NQTs

Facilitator: Specialist Leaders of Education from across the city

Following another successful year of the city wide NQT programme, the city’s Teaching Schools (Bristol Early Years Teaching School Consortium and the Bristol Primary Teaching School Alliance) have again joined together to provide a comprehensive programme for NQT support and development, planned and facilitated by the Specialist Leaders of Education and school leaders – experienced teachers and leaders from across the city in partnership with the local authority. 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.


The sessions we are offering across the year are:

A FREE welcome event for all NQTs in the city at the M-Shed in a joint session from Bristol LA and the teaching schools

Tuesday 10th September 2019 from 3.45pm – 5.45pm – You will be able to hear about teaching in Bristol, visit a range of exhibition stands from interesting cultural providers in the city and meet some of the key education personnel as you move into your first year of teaching.

The role of the statutory body:

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.

To access the TwS website, with the induction and registration paperwork and details of the support needed for school based NQT mentors and NQTs themselves, please visit: http://www.tradingwithschools.org/Article/21908

Please contact us at: bptsa@bristol-schools.uk or for further advice or to find out more about registering your NQT using Bristol as the appropriate body, please contact Jenny Brookes via email at jenny.brookes@bristol.gov.uk
