Our RQT Programme is designed to support teachers through their second year of teaching, recognising the turbulence and disruption of the last academic year.

Building upon their knowledge, skills and experience, the carefully planned sessions follow a tried and tested format.  The first autumn half term will mirror the NQT offer at this difficult time, with a focus on emotional well-being and class management to support children in their return to full time learning.

As the year progresses, this programme is designed to build a learning network.  When face to face contact is re-introduced, the RQTs will have opportunities to work alongside Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) in a range of subjects, including observing them teach.  Interactive lesson studies will focus on refining subject knowledge and securing pedagogical approaches to help RQTs develop the confidence to adapt teaching to suit individual needs.  The programme also offers access to our unique Professional Partner Programe.  This allows each RQT bespoke support from a named senior leader within our member schools.  This can be accessed throughout the year.
