Evidence shows that the highest dropout rate of teachers leaving the profession takes place in years 2 – 6. Working collaboratively to meet the challenges of teacher retention and build capacity in the regions schools, this RQT programme brings together expertise from the three Secondary Teaching Schools in South Tyneside. This programme of 6 facilitated workshops will support colleagues in their early years of teaching who want to advance, develop and improve their teaching practice and deliver consistently great learning experiences for young people.

Programme aims:

  • To support Recently Qualified Teachers development
  • To achieve consistently outstanding practise in the classroom
  • To support schools to develop and improve mentoring and coaching systems enabling resources available in their own schools to be exploited
  • To develop early leadership skills to support succession planning and talent development
  • To develop a network of peer support and collaboration with other RQTs from local schools
