Newly Qualified Teacher Induction and Early Career Teacher Support 2020-21

Connect Teaching School Alliance is an Appropriate Body for the Statutory Induction and provides support for Newly Qualified Teachers.

An NQT’s statutory induction period is the bridge between their initial teaching training and a successful career in the teaching profession. It combines a personalised programme of development, support and professional dialogue with focus on monitoring and assessment against the Teacher Standards. The induction programme supports the NQT in demonstrating their performance against the relevant standards is satisfactory by the end of the process, ensuring the teacher is equipped with all the tools to be effective and successful teachers.

As the Appropriate Body, Connect TSA will undertake all the statutory duties as attached, starting with the registration of the NQT with the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA).
