An NQT’s statutory induction period is the bridge between their initial teaching training and a successful career in the teaching profession. It combines a personalised programme of development, support and professional dialogue with focus on monitoring and assessment against the Teacher Standards.

As the Appropriate Body, Keystone Teaching School will undertake all the statutory duties listed below, starting with the registration of the NQT with the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA):

Z

Initial registration with Teaching Regulations Agency

Z

Electronic NQT induction paperwork provided, with handbook, support materials and forms

Z

Joint induction training for NQT and their Mentor

Z

Email update reminders for assessment dates

Z

Electronic collation of key paperwork

Z

Advice and documentation provided when the NQT is judged to be a ‘Cause for Concern’ and at risk of not reaching necessary standards to pass their induction year

Z

Signposting additional support/training for NQTs assessed to be needing additional support to meet the Teacher Standards

Z

Reporting to TRA on progress and final outcome of the NQT induction year

Register your Newly Qualified Teachers with Keystone Teaching School as the Appropriate Body for NQT Induction to benefit from a service designed by experienced school-based NQT Mentors. Induction goes beyond the minimum statutory requirements to ensure the best possible start to the careers of our next generation of teachers.

The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs and the Appropriate Body makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher/Principal. An NQT needs to be registered with an Appropriate Body before they commence their induction. It is possible to complete an induction programme on a part-time basis. The induction period for a part-time NQT is calculated pro-rata so that the same number of sessions is covered as for a full time NQT.

It is the responsibility of schools to ensure that they commit appropriate resources to the induction of NQTs. It is the joint responsibility of the Appropriate Body and the school to ensure the quality of this induction provision.

Testimonials

The NQT training sessions I’ve attended to date have been extremely beneficial for two key reasons.  Firstly, they have given me the opportunity to meet with other NQTs from various schools to share ideas and best practice, and also to discuss any concerns or issues surrounding all aspects of teaching.

Secondly, having had real-life experience of teaching my own class this year, I have been able to draw upon this to get the most out of the sessions, making the training both relevant and purposeful.  Furthermore, the advice we’ve received from the experienced trainers has been incredibly practical and worthwhile because I have been able to implement many suggestions and ideas the very next day in the classroom. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

The NQT training I’ve received has been exactly what I’ve needed to get me through my time as an NQT! I knew this year would come with its challenges, but I can honestly say I have felt completely supported from start to finish. I have always felt in control. Yes, I know, rare words for an NQT! I have been on copious training sessions, liaising with experienced consultants across Lincolnshire. These sessions have enabled me to grow into my role as a professional teacher. I can’t thank Keystone and their wonderful team enough!
