Supporting and developing Newly Qualified
Teachers in their first year of teaching is hugely important. The NQT Training
Programme has been developed to reinforce key subject knowledge areas, as well
as provide informal links and support throughout the year.
Each workshop will have a specific theme as
well as focused discussion about progress and support. Your ongoing
development as a primary teacher is our main aim.
The School of Education’s NQT training programme is run in partnership with the Oxfordshire Teaching School’s Alliance.
The Primary NQT Training Programme provides NQTs with an opportunity to reflect on their practice and integrate further ideas and approaches to develop their teaching. The programme will also provide a basis for on-going professional development with links into the School of Education’s range of Postgraduate Certificate courses and MA in Education modules.
The sessions will be led by staff within the School of Education at Oxford Brookes University who are closely involved with the range of primary teacher training courses. Facilitators will work closely with experienced colleagues in OTSA partner schools in order to ensure that the sessions are relevant to the context within which the NQTs are working.
A series of seven workshops running across the academic year focusing on supporting Newly Qualified Teachers
Wednesday afternoons, 13:30–16:30, Harcourt Hill Campus
Gaining Academic Creditfor the NQT Programme: You also have the option to gain Masters level credit for your NQT programme by enrolling on our module P70014 Investigating Practice. For the additional module fee of £250, you can ‘top up’ your NQT programme to a full Masters module worth 20 credits by writing a short reflective statement (2000 words) regarding your NQT year and bringing together illustrative materials documenting your professional learning. On successful completion of the module you would be awarded 20 Masters level credits which you could bring, along with other Masters level credit such as a PGCE into our Brookes MA Education framework.
Alongside this training programme you will also need to register with an appropriate body for statutory NQT induction. The Appropriate bodies in Oxfordshire are the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools’ Alliance.
