NQT Policy


All qualified teachers employed in a state school in England must, by law, complete an induction period satisfactorily. This induction period is the bridge between Initial Teacher Training and a career in teaching. It combines a personalised programme of development, support and professional dialogue, with monitoring and assessment of performance against the Core Teaching Standards (see Appendix A). The programme should assist an NQT in meeting the Core Standards by the end of the induction period and equip him/her with the tools to be an effective and successful teacher. The Core Standards apply to all NQTs; they form part of the framework of professional standards for teachers, and are the standards, which underpin all the subsequent standards.


This policy has been written in accordance with the Statutory Guidance on Induction for Newly Qualified Teachers in England and should be read in conjunction with this.
