At the NQT meetings I’ve been able to talk to other NQTs and the teachers running the training sessions about their experiences and concerns etc. Plus learn about various aspects of teaching. I particularly enjoyed the NQT conference at the Bishop of Winchester School.
Networking and sharing ideas on aspects of the curriculum and how to improve in each teaching standard.
The opportunity to share experiences and challenges with others in similar situations.
Going into other schools on learning trails, specific and non-specific.
