NQT Programme

NQT Programme

The Gryphon offers an intensive programme of training and support for Newly Qualified Teachers. The programme develops outstanding teachers who have a broad range of skills and experience in all aspects of pedagogy. NQTs are mentored by outstanding practitioners and receive a personalised programme of support. All NQTs undertake a piece of action research which allows them to develop expertise in a chosen area.

The NQT programme starts with a paid week in July (see sample programme below) and continues with a range of training and mentoring throughout the first year.  All NQTs will have bespoke sessions covering:

  1.    Data Reviews and cover lessons
  2.    Parents’ Evenings & Profiles
  3.    Building positive relationships with students
  4.    Behaviour management
  5.    Time and stress management
  6.    Starters and Plenaries

  8.    AfL
  9.    Organising trips and visits
  10.    Faking it!
