At Primary Advantage we pride ourselves in offering our NQTs the very best start in their teaching career. We have a long-standing track record of delivering NQT training to schools in Hackney and beyond. We have designed this comprehensive, tailored programme to best suit the needs of NQTs, offering a wide menu of choice, as well as plenty of opportunity to spend time in a range of classrooms and learn from others by observing the best practice.
The programme consists of ten half day taught sessions, ten school visits (with EYFS visits being tailored to EYFS settings) and then ten additional days to be spent on your own personal development, which can be guided and formulated during taught sessions. Each session will rotate on a three weekly cycle. During each taught session we unpick key principles of teaching, how the theory can be implemented back into the classroom and aim to have direct impact on developing each NQT into a highly skilled practitioner. Sessions will focus on topics that include behaviour management, SEND, well-being and curriculum subject specific content.
NQT taught sessions will run on Thursday mornings at Holy Trinity Primary School, led by experienced leaders from across the Primary Advantage Federation. School visits will run in accordance with a pre-designed timetable.

School Visits / Learning Triads
These are a compulsory and key part of the NQT training programme. NQTs in groups will visit each others’ schools and observe best practice, focusing on a theme from the previous taught session, and reflect on what they have observed. A timetable of visits will be distributed at the start of the programme. Schools will be expected to host several triads throughout the year, and in return their NQTs will have the opportunity to see practice in other schools. Triad visits will be planned at NQT schools and beyond to offer a breadth of experience.
