Essex NQT Programme

Their role, in partnership with the South Essex Teaching School Alliance and Essex and Thames Primary SCITT, is to offer guidance, advice, training and quality assurance to help schools ensure their NQT induction provision complies with the Department of Education’s statutory requirements.

Essex and Thames Primary SCITT is now offering schools the opportunity to book a place for a members of staff to attend with their NQT with the recognition that some of our courses are valuable for staff beyond their NQT year.

Headteachers who have sent NQTs on these courses over the past few years have requested the courses be opened up to provide valuable on-going teacher training for other members of staff.

Whilst not all our courses are suitable for those beyond the NQT year, many are, and we happy to answer any questions regarding on suitability.
