Lambeth Newly Qualified Teachers
All Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) have to undertake a period of induction after being awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), overseen by an Appropriate Body - Lambeth is able to take on this role for schools and NQTs. In addition, all NQTs should undertake a programme of training sessions during their period of induction, allowing them to build on the teaching received and experience gained during Initial Teacher Training (ITT) - Lambeth offer a programme of sessions, which can be attended as a complete programme or individually. Lambeth have a proven track record of assisting schools and NQTs to successfully complete induction, and are able to advise schools and NQTs when issues arise with any aspect of induction. We have staff who have been working on aspects of induction since NQT induction was first put in place in 1999, meaning that they have a full working knowledge of the statutory requirements of NQT induction.
