Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)

Who is the programme for?

The Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance offers a bespoke training and development programme to newly qualified teachers (NQTs), who have attained qualified teacher status (QTS).

What is involved?

The NQT programme follows on from the initial teacher training (through School Direct) by inducting NQTs into their own classrooms and specific subjects. We offer personalised support to help NQTs build confidence and strengthen their teaching practice.

In addition to receiving ongoing in-school support from a highly experienced mentor, NQTs will also attend:

  • A dedicated NQT induction day
  • A residential conference at the start of the academic year
  • A best-practice conference
  • Specific NQT training, one day per month.

The intensive support programme and events are exclusive to NQTs who are training with the Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance.


One academic year, although it is possible to complete in a shorter timeframe.


Placements are available throughout our Harris Academies.
