Code: NS/19/6 NQT Programme 2019-2020

The NQT Support Programme aims to provide high quality support and development for those

starting their teaching career. This will be achieved through an inspiring approach, which is

facilitated by Headteachers and Specialist Leaders of Education within North Star Teaching School

Alliance. The course is rooted in a drive to develop outstanding practitioners for the benefit of

children in North Star Schools. In addition, the programme aims to embed a commitment to

Continuing Professional Development in NQTs, promoting the ethos of responsibility for their own

development. The programme was extremely successful in previous years, with 100% of delegates

giving positive feedback:

“I will be happier so more effective teaching”

“The flexible approach made it feel relevant and really useful”

“It has helped me take a step back and think about things.”

“Nice to share with other NQTs in the same boat – felt really supported…”

Code: NS/19/12 Developing a feel for number - EYFS

In light of the 2018-2019 EYFS pilot, the publication Bold Beginnings and the possible future reduction of ELG in mathematics, this course seeks to show how to promote the thinking of young children in the Early Years Foundation Stage and develop a feel for number.
