Initial teacher Training: PGCE -> 2nd Year Teachers


Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs)


Who is the programme for?

The All Saints Teaching School offers a bespoke training and development programme to newly qualified teachers (NQTs), who have attained qualified teacher status (QTS).


What is involved?

The NQT programme follows on from the initial teacher training by inducting NQTs into their own classrooms and specific subjects. We offer personalised support to help NQTs build confidence and strengthen their teaching practice.


In addition to receiving ongoing in-school support from a highly experienced mentor, NQTs will also attend:

• A dedicated NQT induction day

• A best-practice conference

• Weekly bespoke professional studies sessions

Ben says:

“I really liked the variety of CPD sessions on offer last year. Hearing from colleagues on topics that they were so knowledgeable and passionate about certainly helped improve my teaching over the course of my NQT year”.

Aisha says:

“Training at All Saints gave me the chance to learn from excellent, experienced teachers. I was also able to get involved in the wider school community such as helping out with the school production.  I feel very fortunate to have worked in such a supportive school.”



Leon says:

"My experience of training to be a teacher at All Saints Catholic School was an experience of true blessing.


I was supported by every single staff member and made to feel a part of the community, which enabled me to meet the Teachers' Standards to an exceptional level."
