NQT Induction & Training

Primary and Secondary schools can register NQTs starting their induction period in September 2018. 

Kyra offers 2 levels of support for schools with NQTs which are:

NQT Induction – Kyra is an Appropriate Body for NQT induction and can provide this service to primary and secondary schools

NQT Support – Kyra runs a range of training and support opportunities for primary NQTs and their Induction Tutors, designed  to complement and enhance the induction provided by the NQT’s employing school. Details of the support opportunities for 2017-18 will be posted soon.

Statutory Induction of NQTs – NQTs working in primary and secondary schools

As an Appropriate Body, we have the main quality assurance role within the induction process, ensuring schools provide adequate support for their NQTs and that assessment is fair and consistent across institutions.  The relevant statutory guidance can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/induction-for-newly-qualified-teachers-nqts

An NQT cannot start statutory Induction until their Appropriate Body has been agreed and the relevant registration paperwork submitted.  Schools may work with the Appropriate Body of their choice.
