National Induction Programme for NQTs 2020/2021

Important Information for NQTs regarding Cluster Meetings and NIPT Induction Workshops

Please note the following important information for NQTs regarding Cluster Meetings and NIPT Induction Workshops:

Cluster Meetings

NQTs undertaking the Droichead process are required to complete one Cluster Meeting per term.

All NQTs must have applied to the Teaching Council to undertake the Droichead process by March 19th 2021 and received a confirmation email before registering for CM1.

Cluster Meeting 1 (CM1): CM1 is available to NQTs via our online learning platform here and will be available online only during Term 3 2021. Please note that CM1 for Term 2 has now closed and will re-open on Monday, April 12th 2021 at 10 am. Please be advised that NQTs who have not fully completed CM1 and/or who have not printed their Certificate of Achievement can do so when CM1 re-opens on April 12th.

Cluster Meeting 2 (CM2): CM2 will be facilitated via Zoom from April 20th - 29th and dates/times will be released on the 12th and 19th. Protocols apply and those NQTs wishing to attend are required to familiarise themselves with them prior to registering. Protocols as well as the link to register for CM2 can be accessed here.

Cluster Meeting 3 (CM3): CM3 will be facilitated in May.

Induction Workshops

A suite of online workshops continues to be available to NQTs: 4 Primary workshops; 5 Post-Primary workshops and 3 Cross-Sectoral workshops.

Induction workshops are open to all NQTs to support their professional learning. While they are not a requirement of the Droichead process, many NQTs find it beneficial to use them as an Additional Professional Learning Activity.

Evidence-Based Behavioural Support (NIPTWS09) for Post-Primary NQTs has been added to the suite and is now available.
