RQT Development Programme 

The Swaledale Alliance runs a successful CPD programme for Recently Qualified Teachers in its schools.

The programme aims to develop participants’ pedagogical skills as well as their leadership skills.  Any teacher who is currently in their second or third year of teaching is welcome to participate and share knowledge and expertise with their peers.

Programme Details

The RQT programme is a series of virtual twilight sessions conducted via Zoom, this allows participants to focus on aspects of their RQT work whilst developing their network of peer support and collaboration with other colleagues from Alliance schools.  It is designed to follow on from the NQT course and give participants the next steps in their career development and should be viewed as an essential part of the performance management cycle.
