Bury Primary NQT Programme 2018 - 2019

We are pleased to announce the 2018 - 2019 Bury Primary NQT Course Programme.

The feedback from the 2017 - 2018 cohort of Primary NQTs has been excellent and we would like to thank the schools who either released staff to facilitate training sessions or who hosted group visits for Bury NQTs.

The 2018 - 2019 Bury Primary NQT Programme includes seven fully inclusive days of training and development, a mentor training and support package, 1-1 coaching support for those NQTs who need it and a 24 hour residential with contributions from Bury practitioners and a nationally recognised speaker, Andy Griffith.

The cost of the programme is £800 and places can be reserved by emailing BTSA@bury.gov.uk
