Early Career Offer
All Early Career Teachers (those in their Newly Qualified or Recently Qualified years) at Consilium Academies receive regular support from a mentor, regular instructional coaching, and regular training alongside their NQT or RQT cohort both within their school and across the trust.
We believe offering colleagues a strong induction to the teaching profession is of vital importance. We want to set our colleagues up for a long and successful career in teaching, and help them to provide the best education possible for students.
All our schools were eligible for the early roll-out of the new Early Career Framework in the 2020-21 academic year, when we supported 29 NQTs across the trust, and we’ll be continuing to offer this enhanced support during the national roll out from September 2021. During the 2020-21 year we have been partnered with Ambition Institute to deliver weekly mentoring, coaching and training for NQTs: Ambition – Core Induction Programme (education.gov.uk)
While enhanced support isn’t available for RQTs as part of the national rollout (this begins in September 2022), at Consilium we have committed to offering our RQTs additional support and training from September 2021.
