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…”Essential Information
