2019/2020 Newly Qualified Teacher Development Programme - Primary

The Partners in Learning Primary NQT programme is designed and facilitated to support NQTs through a series of face-to-face training sessions, gap tasks and a peer network. This extended programme will be sustained over a ten-month period and will be designed in line with the Standard for teachers’ professional development (DfE 2016). It will complement in-school CPD and support from mentors. Wherever possible we will draw upon the best available evidence on teaching and learning.

The purpose of the programme:

  • To support the participants to meet the required induction standards
  • To provide NQTs with teaching strategies that have been proven to support learning
  • To facilitate a network for continued professional learning and mutual support


A programme of support and development which includes:

  • Welcome Meetings
  • Face to Face training and networking sessions
  • On-going training and support for Mentors

“The EEF is delighted to have been able to work with Partners in Learning and Doncaster schools on the ‘Making best use of Teaching Assistants’ project. The way the evidence has been brought ‘to life’ by bringing in expertise on school improvement, and drawing on local school examples, has been fantastic. Thank you to all the schools for the energy and commitment they have brought to the project. We look forward to working together on future collaborations".
Dr Jonathan Sharples EEF, November 2016
