NQT Support

Newly Qualified Teacher Induction Support & Administration

The BTSA and TES Institute is an accredited Appropriate Body to oversee the induction of NQTs for schools, academies and other organisations. We offer the following services to support schools to meet the requirements:

Support outline

This programme is aimed at Induction Tutors and NQTs and will include:

  • Registration and returns to the NCTL
  • Access to a support website 'NQT Manager'
  • Large number of online resources to aid induction and ensure all statutory requirements are met
  • An electronic copy of the NQT Portfolio; a guide for all involved in the induction period
  • Telephone and email helpline
  • Monitoring of all end of term reports for NQTs
  • NQT panel re. failing NQTs/extensions to the induction period
  • Regular updates re. induction
  • Termly access to professional studies sessions

If your NQT is vulnerable, the following is also available (at no further cost):

  • A monitoring visit to the NQT induction tutor to ensure they have carried out all of their statutory roles and have evidence to support their judgement that the NQT is unlikely to meet induction standards
  • Observation of a lesson(s) delivered by the NQT to quality assure the judgements made by the school
  • Discussion with the NQT to listen to their views on the support they have had regarding their statutory entitlement
  • Feedback to the NQT and co-ordinator with regard to the next steps to be taken to improve the chance of the NQT meeting the induction standards including making recommendations regarding any additional support that is felt to be needed
  • Access to online CPD support

Please note:
Additional support can be purchased in half day units and could include a second monitoring visit before the final assessment report is submitted towards the end of the induction period. 

Cost: £100 per NQT per term
