Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)

Tykes TSA provides a seamless transition from Initial Teacher Training into Early Career Teachers.

Appropriate Body

We fulfil the statutory functions for the ‘appropriate body’ related to the induction process for NQTs, which includes ensuring Head Teachers/Principals and Governing Bodies are carrying out their statutory responsibilities.

The statutory responsibilities can be found in Section 5 – Statutory Guidance on Induction for NQTs (Revised April 2018)

You will find further information on our Appropriate Body page:

Early Career Framework (ECF)

Tykes TSA are a delivery Hub for the Barnsley area for the Education Development Trust’s brand-new programme for early career teachers as part of the expansion to the early rollout of the Early Career Framework.

Local Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Package

To complement the ECF blended programme, Tykes TSA have designed an effective and proven wraparound CPD programme that will support the funded ECF blended programme, focusing on essential provision for NQTs in meeting the teachers standards. The new two year NQT/RQT programme will support early career teachers to develop and ensure congruence with the 5 Core Areas highlighted in the Early Career Framework i.e. Behaviour Management, Pedagogy, Curriculum, Assessment and Professional Behaviours.

Our sessions are delivered by Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs) and other expert educationalists teaching in schools on a day to day basis. Schools have the option of registering NQTs/RQTs for all sessions as a package across two years or can select sessions individually, based on the needs of their NQT/RQTs.
