NQT conference and training programme 2020-21

This year is proving more important than ever to support our Newly Qualified Teachers. We have taken time over the lock down period and the summer break to ensure we have got our training offer just right.
Please see attached for the full programme for further information regarding dates and focus of the planned sessions.
We have taken the decision to move ALL NQT sessions online (with exception of the NQT conference- see below) All dates will remain the same as listed in the brochure. 
The first session will be this Thursday- 24th September starting with Safeguarding. Once registered for the session Paula Foster will send you the zoom link to log in.
We are hoping to review this in December in order to deliver face to face sessions in January 2021.
The North West Learning Partnership annual NQT conference will take place on:
Wednesday 7th October 2020 at Mercure St Helens Hotel, Linkway West, St Helens, WA10 1NG
Agenda to include:
Mathematics- Raising the bar! – Tara Loughran, mathematics consultant
English- Raised Expectations – Maddy Barnes, English Director
Behaviour Management Strategies – Jason Bangbala, Behavioural expert
During face to face events no paper based resources will be given out. All materials will be sent electronically.
Please see the COVID statement attached, as you will see we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure all delegates and staff are protected. 
We will only allow delegates that are booked onto the training to attend the sessions. With this in mind please ensure you book places at all events that you wish to attend (this includes alliance member schools). Previously we have allowed people that have turned up, without booking, into events. Due to reduced numbers and spacing this will not be allowed.
Don’t forget – NWLP Members receive one FREE place at ALL NQT events (including the conference) These places MUST be booked in advance to ensure places are secured. Thank you! 🙂

Cost per individual training session: £60.00 for Full days (including the NQT conference) £30.00 for ½ day and twilights. All alliance partners/members will receive 1 FREE NQT place Schools Direct Trainees that have been trained via the North West Learning Partnership (formerly St Mary and St Thomas CE Teaching School Alliance) and have been successful in securing an NQT post within a partnership school will receive this NQT training offer Free of Charge.  (please see attached for further information).
