working together for all our children
Newly Qualified Teachers
Five Rivers Teaching School Alliance is registered as an Appropriate Body for the assessment of Newly Qualified Teachers. We work in partnership with Educational Success Partners Ltd (ESP) to offer Appropriate Body support to around 450 NQTs a year, providing a complete and comprehensive service to UK schools as well as British schools overseas.
When appointing an NQT, schools must select an Appropriate Body who will quality assure the induction period. This ensures that NQTs are supported correctly, in line with statutory guidance and that the assessment process is fair and consistent across schools.
Working with ESP we provide a complete NQT service that ensures schools, mentors and NQTs are supported through this important Induction Year.
Our professional service offers Appropriate Body support and guidance for all parties involved in the Induction process with a dedicated and knowledgeable team on hand to support schools by telephone, email and with in-school support. We also offer a comprehensive support service for when NQTs are experiencing difficulties. The NQT and School Improvement Team has a wealth of experience when dealing with this sensitive issue which means that whatever the case, we can confidently support you to ensure the best outcome for all involved.
Even though some teachers may already have significant teaching experience, they are still required to complete NQT Induction. We welcome fast-track applications to recognise this experience and allow teachers to complete their induction within a shorter time frame.
Working in partnership with the market leading online NQT platform NQT Manager our schools benefit from an online assessment and reporting system that minimises the need for paperwork, allowing your NQT administration to be less time consuming and saving valuable time for all.
Appropriate Body support can be supplemented by bespoke Continuing Professional Development support for schools, MATs and local authorities. Working with some of the UK’s leading CPD names such as Will Ord, Chimp Management and Art of Brilliance we can build you a bespoke package to give your inexperienced teachers the very best start to their careers.
