It consists of four full days spread over the academic year that cover essential aspects to support the development of high quality practice and provision.

    Special School NQT

    This practical and informative programme is led by colleagues currently working in special schools alongside HfL’s SEND advisers. Delivered across three days spread over the academic year, this course can be tailored to meet the needs of the delegates and reflect the type of school they are working in.

    In recent years, as well as providing an essential overview of the induction year, topics have included: supporting learners with apps, iPADs and other technologies; exploring how to make effective use of visual cues and other classroom strategies; making best use of assessment systems.

    Recent delegates have commented on how they have valued the opportunity to discuss and share issues relevant to being an NQT in a special school.

    Training for NQT induction tutors

    This is an opportunity for new and experienced induction tutors to be confident of the requirements of the induction period as well as focusing on the tutors role in providing support and challenge for their NQT.

    Subject specific training for NQTs

    We also offer subject specific training for NQTs appropriately targeted to address areas of development and strengthen their practice.
