Harris External NQT Induction


Harris External NQT Induction

On Tuesday 10th July, it was our pleasure to welcome Primary and Secondary NQTs, who will be beginning their teaching careers at schools across the Harris Federation.  It was exciting to meet our new teachers and discuss with them the impact they would like to make on our young people across the range of academies, subjects and age phases in the Federation.

There was a real buzz and excitement over the course of the day as the NQTs discussed teaching and learning and the year ahead.  The induction session provided NQTs with the opportunity to engage in current pedagogical research, receive an introduction to the Federation policies and practices and to begin getting to know each other as the NQT cohort of 2018/19.

The external NQTs will be joining our cohort of internal NQTs who will be graduating from our Harris School Direct training programme. Our NQTs will continue to work with the ITE team throughout the year, receiving personalised training sessions to develop and support their practice.   We will also come together to attend the ResearchEd conference in September, which will provide a pedagogical boost at the beginning of term.

It is great to see so many high quality teachers joining the Federation next year and exciting to lead their ongoing CPD throughout 2018/19.
