NQTs Starting September 2020 and Covid-19
NQTs starting induction in September will need to be registered with the Appropriate Body as normal.
Two documents are attached to this communication:
1) An NQT Planner that tutors may wish to use for the first few weeks of Induction and includes sections for the last term of the NQT's training and considerations needed when they start induction given Covid-19.
This document will also be attached to the email confirming registration and is in Word format to enable content to be adapted, removed and added as appropriate.
2) A list of suggestions on managing the start of induction during Covid-19. Tutors are asked to consider the points raised in the document, they are not compulsory. The list is not exhaustive and tutors are asked to share any other ideas they have, especially on ways of monitoring progress and suggestions for sources of evidence. Please email ideas to email@example.com so the document can be updated and re-circulated.
Wherever possible, you may want to consider introducing some aspects of induction to the NQT as soon as possible rather than waiting for September.
Any guidance that the DfE/TRA might publish regarding NQT induction from September, will be circulated to tutors who have registered NQTs and included on Education Services Medway communications.
