Hi all NQTs coming to the end of your NQT year, I would love some input from you all, I am applying for a role to support NQTs at my school, including supporting retention into year 1 and 2 teaching. I have a number of ideas, but would like to know what has either; A) Worked well in your school in supporting you this year B) been something you would like to have had this year. What would have made your year easier? In addition if you are one of the 40% of NQTs leaving teaching after the first year, what are the reasons for your decision, what might have encouraged you to stay in teaching? Many thanks in advance for your responses.
