Description

HART Alliance NQT and RQT and RQT+1 Provision 2019-20

Next year's NQT and RQT meetings have been very successful and we have worked on improving the networks for next year.

Our meetings need to provide targeted support in the key elements of teaching and learning including practical guidance and materials to help NQTs and RQTs and RQT+1s during the school year.

We also need to find ways to provide simple and effective approaches that reduce unnecessary work load across our schools and provide opportunities for peer learning to tackle shared issues.

During this year at in the NQT and HART meetings we will be trying out different approaches and taking feedback from schools about emerging needs. This has led to the introduction of RQT twilight sessions that follow on from the NQT focused sessions.

This approach to our meetings helps colleagues keep up to date, collaborate and spend their precious time out of school on their own school's priorities.

HART works for the good of their schools. As much as possible we try to make the support as reasonably priced as possible. Wherever possible we work to ensure that any profits are returned to the membership schools through funded projects and support for schools experience severe difficulties.

What will this look like?

The NQT Programme will involve one half day of training and support each half term.
