When newly qualified teachers (NQTs) start their teaching career, we make sure they’re fully supported through a strong induction.
To become a fully qualified teacher in England, you must, by law, have satisfactorily completed a period of induction. The induction process has to be quality assured by an ‘appropriate body’. Tykes Teaching School Alliance act as the ‘appropriate body’ for Barnsley’s maintained & non-maintained schools. We’re also willing to work with schools within other local authorities.
The Recently Qualified Teacher (RQT) Programme has been developed in reponse to demand from many of our partner schools following discussions about the needs of their new teachers.
The RQT Development Programme is designed to follow on from the NQT programme led by Tykes TSA and is recommended as a next step for teachers in the early stages of their career and offers additional support after their NQT induction year.
