WAM and Astra Primary NQT Training Programme

 Please note- all NQTs need to be registered with an 'Appropriate Body' which will validate the successful completion of the induction year. WAM TS Alliance has been designated to act as an 'Appropriate Body' for the DfE.

Appropriate Body- click here for information about WAM Appropriate Body induction services for NQTs. This is a separate service to training.

This year we are going to deliver the majority of NQT sessions online on behalf of WAM and Astra for primary NQTs. This allows us to offer you more, adhere to current social distancing guidelines and to include at least one face-to-face conference in addition, when guidelines allow it.  Any NQT can be signed up to the Primary NQT CPD, regardless of which Appropriate Body they are using, or where they trained.


£250 per NQT + VAT

£200 + VAT per NQT for FOSS schools
