NQT Programme

At Chorlton High School we have an extensive Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) programme which helps staff to develop in all aspects of being a new teacher and underpins our core values. This means that we ensure that our NQT’s are Successful, Creative and Happy in the same way that we ensure our learners are.

The NQT programme includes:

  • expert mentor support
  • fortnightly training sessions
  • a residential course
  • coaching
  • opportunities to observe outstanding staff
  • support from student leaders to improve planning, teaching and marking

NQT provision at Chorlton High has been praised by Ofsted and is recognised across Manchester for its impact on quality of teaching and the high level of support provided. We lead in the collaborative training of NQTs across Manchester and our in-house programme ensures that the majority of NQTs end their first year in the profession as ‘Good’ classroom practitioners, if not ‘Outstanding’.
