Supporting NQTs at the start of their career

Following requests from newly qualified teachers (NQTs) and initial teacher training (ITT) providers for additional support during the ongoing situation, education recruitment specialists ABC Teachers has adapted and enhanced our support programme for Summer 2020 and the 2020/2021 academic year.

We are passionate about providing teachers entering the profession with as much support as possible. So, in addition to the online EduCare CPD, Guaranteed Pay Scheme contracts and long-term and permanent roles we offer, we are now also providing NQTs across the country with the following additional support and opportunities for FREE.

1. Mock Video & Feedback Session - We are working closely with headteachers and deputy headteachers to offer NQTs the opportunity to have a mock video interview with a school leader. The questions are designed by the headteachers and will include a variety of areas that would usually be covered during the interview process. Interview feedback will then be provided on strengths and areas for development.

2. Online CPD - We have teamed up with ShiNE Teaching School Alliance to provide a series of online training sessions throughout May. The sessions are listed below and will be delivered online from 9am to 11am.

  • Assessment  - Wed 6th May

  • Applications and interviews - Thurs 7th May

3. NQT Training & Networking Sessions - From September, our branches will be hosting monthly training and networking sessions for NQTs. It will be a great opportunity to gain valuable CPD and get to meet other NQTs, recently qualified teachers (RQTs) from 2019/2020 and education professionals from local schools. 

4. Enhanced Support - We are currently exploring the possibility of ABC Teachers supporting an online NQT TeachMeet, and developing an online support hub for NQTs and a series of ‘Top Tips’ guidance sheets, to run alongside our ITT Support Programme.
