NQT Support

NQT Training at Spiral Partnership Trust

Still image for this video

Spiral has a well established history of training and developing excellent teachers.  We are proud that many of our teachers joined us on the first day of their careers as Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs) and are still with us many years later and many of those teachers are now leaders in our schools. 


From day one we work hard to support and develop new teachers to be the best they can be.  We offer our own bespoke NQT support, NQTs across the trust meet together regularly to;

  • Develop their understanding of what makes good teaching and learning,
  • Ensure good pedagogy is at the heart of every lesson
  • Share good practice and learning resources
  • Explore different learning environments
  • And have the opportunity to observe and learn from some of our best experienced teachers.


Every NQT has an NQT mentor and dedicated NQT time every week to invest in their own professional development, they are invited to take part in a wide range of professional development activities such as team teaching, lesson studies and self reflection.  This, combined with our taught sessions which aim to put the latest research and theory into practice, ensures our NQTs are well supported and quickly become good teachers.


A professional development plan for every teacher ensures that even after the first year we continue to develop and invest in our teachers and future leaders.
