NQT Induction Programme 2017-2018
Altrincham Grammar School for Girls, the lead school of the Alliance for Learning, is an Appropriate Body for the professional induction of newly qualified teachers (NQTs).
The appointment of an Appropriate Body is a statutory requirement for the induction period of NQTs and the Appropriate Body makes the final decision as to whether an NQT has met the Teachers’ Standards on the recommendation of the Headteacher.
The Alliance for Learning offers a comprehensive induction package, which includes two highly acclaimed NQT conferences, for all schools with NQTs who commence employment during the academic year 2017-18. This package is designed to support schools in the induction process and enable all NQTs to be clearly assessed against the Teachers’ Standards.
It is the responsibility of schools to ensure that they commit appropriate resources to the induction of newly qualified teachers. It is the responsibility of the Appropriate Body to ensure quality of this induction provision. As the Appropriate Body our service includes the administration, quality assurance and supporting & monitoring of NQTs.

Jason Bangbala, a leading Educational Consultant will be delivering a session on “Conquering Low Level Disruption and Promoting Positive Attitudes To Learning” on 13 November 2017
The bottom line is that OFSTED see low level disruption as a problem. They estimate that pupils lose at least 1 hour a day and 38 days within the academic year due to low level disruption. Equally teachers are concerned. In a recent survey 75% teachers said that they have had to deal with a violent incident.
During this fun, down to earth, no-nonsense and interactive session, delegates will be provided with a whole toolkit of simple, practical and realistic strategies. These can be implemented the very next day in their own practice, to de-escalate and diffuse any low level inappropriate behaviour quickly, effectively and non-confrontationally. Delegates will also be provided with a complete range of practical ideas to prevent any low level inappropriate behaviour occurring in the first place and creating a positive climate for learning. Delegates will also be equipped to adopt the key principles of developing outstanding behaviour, including rules, routines, relationships, rewards, engagement, effective learning and teaching, positive parental involvement, presence, assertiveness, confidence and consistency.
Delegates will also have the tools and strategies to support pupils to have a ‘can do’ attitude to learning where they are independent, resilient,take risks and have a growth mindset.
The heart of the session focuses on giving delegates the confidence and skills to tackle behaviour themselves and not pass the buck. It also gives them an opportunity to reflect on their own behaviour with a view to them ensuring that they are motivating pupils to have a positive attitude to learning.
Previous comments about the courses
- For Autumn last year our fixed term exclusions were 17. After your training our fixed term exclusions for this Autumn term have dramatically dropped to 2. Thank you so much.
- “9 months ago at a Future Leaders weekend I had a professional Development experience which altered the way I viewed my job as a headteacher. Today I was challenged in a way that was even more significant than that experience. Your session has changed my understanding of what the role of the headteacher is”
