NQT Support

Your first year of training and the award of QTS is just the start of the journey and the relationship with ourselves. Whether you go on to be employed within or outside the CLF we offer continued support into your NQT year. Below are the various elements of support:

NQT Network

As a SCITT graduate you will be invited to join a network comprising of all of the NQTs within CLF schools and all SCITT graduates. 

The aim of the group to further enhance your knowledge and understanding through professional development and to provide additional peer support 








In your NQT year you will continue to receive high quality professional development both within your school and through central CLF events

An initial self-assessment will enable you to identify your learning gaps and subsequent training is tailoring to close them


 NQT Conference

All SCITT graduates are invited to the annual CLF NQT conference.

It is an opportunity to network with a large group of newly qualified teachers and receive training on current educational issues.




In your NQT year you will continue to receive mentoring both within your school and from the SCITT team.

This mentoring is vital to your continued development as a teacher and will enable you to reflect on your strengths and emerging needs.
