Recently Qualified Teacher Programme (RQT)
Elston Hall Learning Trust is pleased to offer this programme to support Recently Qualified Teachers (RQTs) in their second year of teaching (RQTs / Year 2 ECTs) in order to continue to build on an excellent start to their career.
This year’s programme has been planned specifically to ensure that sessions help to support teachers who have experienced disruption to their first year due to the COVID-19 situation. Organised in core themes, the programme will be delivered through a series of day sessions designed to respond to the needs of teachers in the early stages of their teaching career.
In addition, the programme aims to provide bespoke support to enable participants to consider leadership roles and responsibilities. It will also explore ways to develop professional learning as well as new strategies to effectively participate in and lead a successful team. The opportunity to engage in and experience different school contexts to broaden experience will be a key aspect of the programme.
The programme will be led by experienced facilitators in their field and will be delivered to the group of RQTs collaboratively. We will seek to exemplify key standards outlined in the Early Career Framework by providing related practical strategies that can be easily applied in the classroom.
It builds on our successes of previous years and has been further developed to address school needs as identified by formal evaluation processes, as well as discussions with highly skilled professionals.
Programme Conference Dates
Throughout the year, teachers will have the opportunity to visit other schools in order to gain experience in alternative settings. Good practice observations will be arranged throughout the year across all of our 5 Primary Schools within the Trust and beyond.
This programme is suited for Recently Qualified Teachers (in their second year of teaching) or for individuals who are in first 2-5 years of their teaching career.
