Supporting and developing Newly Qualified Teachers in their first year of teaching is hugely important. Our new, enhanced Primary NQT Training Programme aims to provide teachers with the additional knowledge, confidence and support they need to progress successfully through their introductory stage of teaching.
As always, we understand the importance of developing teacher’s knowledge throughout the core curriculum topics such as English, Science and Maths - in which we are recognised as being the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics.
This year, with the inclusion of subjects such as art, drama and music into the programme we feel we can bring out the passion and confidence in teachers, schools and pupils to develop in these topics that may have previously been neglected.
Working in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching, Newly Qualified Teachers when enrolled on the programme, get automatic, free access to a range of online communities, forums, events and conferences to share and discuss best practice, teaching and learning outcomes.
The NQT programme consists of 10 half day interactive face to face sessions, held at Harcourt Hill Campus, Oxford. Starting in September 2019 and continuing through until June 2020, the NQT programme will be held on a Thursday afternoon from 1.30 - 4.30pm.
Session titles include:
Creating learning focused classrooms
Planning, marketing and feedback
English and Children’s Literature
Effective Science Teaching
Certificates will be provided to all delegates who complete 7 out of the 10 sessions within the programme
*Reduced rate available for Oxford Brookes partnership or OTSA partner schools

It is aimed at Early Years practitioners in any school, nursery, or childcare environment, to support the learning of children with special educational needs and disabilities, but would also be of interest to teachers and TAs from Special schools who work with children with severe, complex or profound disabilities, and of all ages.
This course will give you an understanding in how to identify and teach children who are accessing phonics at the early stages. It will allow you to teach children basic phonological awareness following each child’s individual learning style. It will give practical ideas to allow children, including those with SEN, to access phonics at phase 1 and 2 of the Government’s Letters and Sounds initiative.Essential Information

An event for trainee teachers and NQTs in and around Oxfordshire. Updates on MFL news, resources and events plus a chance to network!
Free to attendEssential Information
This event is aimed at teachers who are new to the special school sector, either NQTs or those transferring from other sectors.
Teaching in a Special school is markedly different from teaching in mainstream, and different Special schools have their own values, specialisms, resources and curriculum. This course is designed to connect you with other practioners who are 'New to Special', and to facilitate peer observations in each other's schools. You will have the opportunity to start a professional dialogue with other Special school teachers, gain fresh perspectives, articulate your practice and to improve the quality of your own teaching.
What people say about this event:
“Really good conversations and lots of time spent discussing, as opposed to carrying out meaningless tasks.”
“Really useful to share experiences with colleagues from other schools.”
“I enjoyed the meeting and discussing the varied practices in different settings.”
84% of previous participants agreed that the programme helped them to feel connected to a wider community of SEND practice.Essential Information

Building on your learning from the ITT year, we’ll be exploring tried and tested approaches to support self-managed and sustainable strategies to ensure regular energy - and emotional- recharge during your teaching day, week and term as well as signposting to further supports for you to take away and use as and when needed. Also a goodie-bag for you to take home.

The success or failure of learning so often hinges on how well behaviour is managed.
The principles discussed and explored in this session will empower participants to rethink how they view and respond to behaviour.
Whether you are a Teaching Assistant, NQT, or a teacher with many years of experience, this workshop is designed to refresh how you support vulnerable pupils who exhibit challenging behaviour.
Senior Leaders and experienced class teachers from Frank Wise Special school will work with you to unpick tricky cases and address individual concerns.It will be interactive, and will give participants practical guidance on creating a positive classroom atmosphere, responding strategically to disruptive behaviour, and maximising the potential of all of the children with whom they work.
