Dear James

Discussion in 'NQTs and new teachers' started by flow18er, Jul 11, 2015.

  1. I'm in need of some advice, after 6 weeks of starting a NQT term would a formal assessment normally take place. Wouldn't this normally happen over 2 half terms?

    4th June - initial meeting

    9th June - first lesson ob

    11th June - action plan meeting

    22nd June - lesson ob

    2nd July - formal review

    9th July - end of first term assessment report was written by mentor.

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    There are no guidelines regarding the actual number of lesson observations only what suits the school and allows opportunity for the NQT to be assessed against teaching standards. The concept is that induction is an individual programme tailored to the needs of the NQT the main standard requirements are; reduced timetable, mentor support, target setting and planning and formal reporting to the Appropriate Body.
  3. How the process is managed by a school is down to the school. What you describe above is a sensible approach. Normally schools are advised to map out the year as part of the first formal meeting so that the NQT and the school are aware of the various things that will be happening roughly when and who is responsible.
