Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Induction

Cambridgeshire provides a thorough NQT induction period, designed to provide both support and challenge, allowing NQTs to build upon the skills and knowledge gained during training. All NQTs should have a structured programme of professional development which will build on the areas for development identified at the end of their training.
