We’re proud to be working with partners from across the sector to deliver the Summer Series: a programme of free webinars to support teachers and school leaders through, and beyond, the coronavirus outbreak.

In our seventh session, Ambition Institute's Dean of Teaching Programmes, Genevieve Field, looks at how we can support teachers starting their NQT year in September.

Genevieve is joined by:

  • Professor Tanya Ovenden-Hope, Provost and Professor of Education at Plymouth Marjon University
  • Lisa Fathers, Director of Teaching School and Partnerships at Bright Futures Education Trust
  • Emma Hollis, Executive Director at the National Association of School-Based Teacher Trainers
  • David Tootell, Assistant Headteacher at Middleton Technology College

Watch back to:

  • Understand the varied needs of NQTs from September and likely gaps that might have emerged
  • Understand the important role you and your school will play in supporting NQTs to close the gaps, both in terms of NQT learning and wellbeing
  • Understand how a range of sector and school leaders are responding to and planning for the challenge, and reflect on what you and your school might learn from their approaches
  • Consider the ripple effects and wider implications of adaptions made, particularly for mentors but also for wider staff CPD
