Primary NQT Training Programme Details

The WAM TS Alliance Primary NQT Training Programme is now available for bookings for the academic year 2019-20. 

Primary NQT Programme

Teaching Talent, the Bucks network of Teaching Schools, have aligned their NQT programme content and prices for September, to give all Bucks NQTs access to the same training and development. WAM TS Alliance serves the south of the county. If you are looking for NQT Training in the north, please contact Astra Learning Alliance to book sessions based in Aylesbury.

Our NQT training programme is suitable for any Primary NQT or newly qualified Overseas Teacher and costs £200 + VAT per NQT for 6 after-school training sessions (£160 + VAT for FOSS schools). All sessions will be run by local, practising teachers, leaders and SLEs. They will take place on Tuesdays, after school, from 4pm - 5.30pm and will be delivered in the Teaching and Leadership Centre at Chepping View Primary Academy, in High Wycombe. This time has been chosen to allow NQTs to make best use of their in-school NQT time for planning, marking and observing other teachers and to ensure that schools will not have to book supply cover.  

The training programme will have 6 core sessions, taken from the draft 'Early Career Framework' released by the DfE earlier this year. There are also 4 optional, and more subject specific, sessions which they can opt into at a cost of £50 + VAT per session. We highly recommend that they at least one optional session is added to the core package. As part of the programme, we will also be pairing NQTs to visit each other and share good practice, developing a network of local NQTs supporting each other. 

NQTs who are not booked onto the full programme can be booked in for any individual sessions at a cost of £50 plus VAT per session, . 

RQTs, Overseas Teachers and those returning to teaching

Individual NQT Programme sessions may also be useful for: staff returning to teaching, overseas teachers and RQTs (NQT +1 year). If you want to book the 6 session programme for one of these categories of teacher, we recommend that they book 6 sessions of their choice from across the 6 core and 4 optional sessions rather than keeping to the 6 core sessions like the NQTs. Please do contact us if you want to discuss it further.
