NQT Support

Space to make the right start

It's important to find a school that fits you well at this crucial stage in your career. The size and diversity of Enfield's school system means there are plenty of options to explore.

But the right start isn't just about finding the right school. Together, the local authority and the borough's schools have worked hard to create a nurturing, supportive environment in which your career can flourish. Here's what you can look forward to in Enfield.

NQT Induction

You'll enjoy a carefully designed induction, offering comprehensive personal and professional support throughout your first year of teaching. The programme provides:

  • Personal and professional support
  • Help with developing school-wide and cross-borough networks
  • An introduction to the support mechanisms and resources within your school and the borough
  • Opportunities to enhance your curriculum knowledge, including the National Curriculum
  • An introduction to the school's ethos, and the ethos of the Local Authority

Welcome Session

We start with a welcome session explaining the induction programme, where you get to meet the subject advisors who will support you. Here you will receive your professional development portfolio and learn how to use it.

Central induction programme

The central induction programme is made up of half-day training sessions on a wide range of subjects. Courses take place at one of our two Professional Development Centre sites.

School-based induction

This will be organised by your Induction Tutor and is based on your Career Entry and Development Profile (CEDP). You will set your objectives together and work on specific agreed areas throughout the year. Please remember that you can only start your induction period once you have passed all three skills tests. For information about the skills tests, practice tests and where your nearest test centre is, visit The Department for Education/Teaching Agency website.
