At Inclusive Schools Trust we appreciate that the first twelve months in the professional development of a new teacher is very demanding. Our induction process ensures appropriate guidance, support and training to include the development of skills, knowledge, expectations and observations are provided through a structured but flexible individual programme.
The Trust Board are fully aware of the contents of the DfE’s Statutory guidance on induction for newly qualified teachers (England) which sets out the individual school's responsibility to provide the necessary monitoring, support and assessments for NQTs. Careful consideration is given, prior to any decision to appoint an NQT, as to whether the school currently has the capacity to fulfil all its obligations.
The schools within the Trust use NQT Manager, an online system that makes it easy for our schools to manage every part of the NQT induction process in one place. The schools follow their published guidance.
The new 'Induction for early career teachers (England) guidance comes into force from 1st September 2021. It updates and replaces the induction for newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and will be adopted across the Trust.
