NQT RQT Leadership Programme


This programme will provide NQTs and RQTs with a wider understanding of the changing educational landscape and an opportunity to explore different leadership pathways. NQTs and RQTs will also engage in subject specific input each term, delivered by an outstanding practitioner. In developing a wider understanding of the current education context, and through working with inspirational educators, NQTs and RQTs will develop both their subject knowledge and leadership skills.

As part of the programme, NQTs and RQTs will carry out a leadership project linked to their school development plan. Bespoke school visits, based on Leadership Project themes, will be arranged with an opportunity to observe an outstanding practitioner of your subject.

In addition, the programme will:

1.     Build confidence;

2.     Improve self-awareness and encourage reflective practice;

3.     Empower teachers;

4.     Support NQTs and RQTs to be creative, passionate and resilient educators;

5.     Provide a network of support.
