  • Don’t forget to contact us by email at [email protected] to book your NQT on our training courses

Assessing your NQT's performance

  • You should complete termly assessments of your NQT's performance as specified in the Teachers’ Standards [external link]
  • Please send completed assessments back to us at [email protected] on a termly basis (for full time NQTs)
