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
